Department of Health Presents Public Health Messages to Statewide Audience
This year, the City of St. Louis Department of Health was honored to have two representatives from its Health Promotion, Education and Marketing Division Nutrition Services' staff present posters at the annual Missouri Public Health Association (MOPHA) meeting on September 23, in Columbia, Missouri. This conference provided an excellent opportunity for practitioners to get the most up-to-date information about public health practices, network with other public health professionals from across the state, and check out exciting research endeavors that have been completed by students and other health agencies. Most attendees either worked at health departments or universities, or were university students in programs related to public health.
