The goal of MACEP's Public Health Committee works to enhance the recognition and effective application of public health activities as part of emergency medicine practice by:

1. Expand collaboration with coalitions, organizations, and individuals with similar interests (e.g. MMS, MHA, MPHA, AAFP, DPH).
2. Advance priorities through coordination with the legislative committee.
3. Expand communications and education within the MACEP community.
4. Institute awards to recognize achievements in Public Health.
