Each Year in conjunction with its Annual Membership Meeting, the Oklahoma Public Health Association holds a 1.5 to 2.5 day educational conference that focuses on providing new information and research on current public health issues and best practices.  This annual conference is open to all members and non-members who are interested in public health issues.
