Contact Details



Greetings from Michigan! 

My name is Lorena and I am the President of the Michigan Public Health Association. I've served with MPHA for 7 years.  I started in the Student Section, then joined the Board of Directors where I served for 5 years before becoming the President. 

Some of my public health interests include healthy eating and physical activity, obesity prevention, epidemiology, policy, leadership, and health communications.  I run my own healthy lifestyles blog and have two fur babies.  I have been a member of APHA since 2016.  

MPHA recently migrated the website, so check us out at:
