This year, Public Health Institute turns 50!

phi50 logoFor half a century Public Health Institute (PHI) has been dedicated to improving the health, well-being and quality of life for people around the world.

Throughout 2014 we will be sharing PHI’s numerous accomplishments to improve the public’s health in California, in the US, and across the globe.  This includes highlighting the important impact of our numerous programs and projects on thousands of people, organizations and communities.

Each month PHI will highlight a specific area of work and plot PHI programs’ contributions to that area on a timeline.
