About Us


The Indiana Society for Public Health Education (InSOPHE) is a professional association made up of a diverse membership of health education professionals and students. InSOPHE promotes healthy behaviors, healthy communities, and healthy environments through its membership and partnerships with other organizations and universities. With its primary focus on public health education, InSOPHE provides leadership through a code of ethics, standards for professional preparation, research, and practice; professional development; and public outreach.

InSOPHE was originally established in 1963 as the Indiana Association of Health Educators (IAHE). After twenty-five (25) years of being a small, local organization, the membership community and board of directors decided that an affiliation with a national organization would be beneficial to health educators in Indiana. After investigating numerous health education and health promotion organizations, IAHE decided that the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) most closely reflected the goals and objectives of the original organization and had many benefits to offer state affiliates. Thus, on November 5, 1999, IAHE became an official SOPHE chapter.
