Oregon Public Health Institute
OPHI’s future will build on its strong foundation of current partnerships and programs such as:
- The HEAL Cities Campaign, a partnership between OPHI and Kaiser Permanente, which helps civic leaders create healthy communities by adopting and implementing healthy eating and active policies and programs.
- The BUILD (Bold, Upstream, Integrated, Local and Data-driven) health challenge, funded by the de Beaumont Foundation, brings OPHI together with broad partners to bolster access to holistic, culturally and linguistically responsive health services in a local Portland neighborhood.
- The Oregon Health & Outdoors Initiative, a multi-sector partnership which increases access to parks, nature, and the outdoors among vulnerable communities.
OPHI's mission: Improve the health of Oregonians.
