Educate! Advocate! Promote! Provide!

In April 1921, a group of physicians founded the South Carolina Public Health Association (SCPHA) in order to address critical public health issues in the state. SCPHA has since evolved into a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is incorporated under the State of South Carolina and has a diverse membership representing multiple disciplines.
