Public Health Portland Style

A monthly forum for Oregonians to explore critical public health issues impacting our communities and our state.

Public Health Portland Style, the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health’s popular discussion forum, addresses some of the most important public health issues facing Portland, our state, and the nation today. From substance abuse to racism, climate change to colonialism, and rural health to Covid-19, Public Health Portland Style is a unique opportunity for you to learn more about these complex problems, ask questions of experts in the field, and share ideas on how we can work to address them in our own communities.

Special thanks to the Ronald Naito-John McAnulty Health Equity Fund (OHSU Foundation) for their generous support of the Public Health Portland Style series for 2020/2021.

Panel discussions include faculty experts from the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health, community and industry leaders, and those with lived experiences, who all bring their different perspectives and expertise, share facts and opinions, and respond to your audience questions.

The 2020/2021 Season of Public Health Portland Style has concluded. In the meantime, you can watch all of this past season’s panel discussions via the links below.
