Vision and leadership for health promotion.

The Great Lakes Chapter of the Society for Public Health Education (GLC-SOPHE) is a volunteer, non-profit professional organization dedicated to promoting healthy behaviors and healthy communities. Our members include workers in health departments, community-based and nonprofit organizations, health plans, schools of public health and other public health programs, tribal health agencies, and many more.

Our chapter was created in 1970 and we continue to provide opportunities for health education professionals to participate in continuing education events, obtain CHES credits, learn about public health advocacy initiatives in the state of Michigan, and network with health education colleagues. 


As part of our strategies, we are dedicated to providing GLC-SOPHE members and Michigan residents with accurate, relatable and reliable health education information. One of our close partners in sexual health education to help provide this content is We invite you to visit their website and learn more about the campaign in Northern Michigan as well as use the tools available on the site, like: the Get Talking Tool, the Birth Control Finder, the Health Center Locator and Are You Ready? pregnancy tool.
