Our mission is to ensure the optimal health of all Ohioans and to be the inclusive Voice of Public Health in Ohio.

We have a strong belief in the power and value of being that voice -for all Ohioans!  And to that end, we champion a Health and Equity in All Policies approach to decision-making and policy development. Only when all Ohioans have equal access to high quality prevention and health care services, and when the places where we all live, learn, work, play and pray comprise the healthiest communities possible, will our work be done! And then we’ll find more ways to make a healthier difference for Ohioans and we’ll keep working!
