WPHA Board Member and Western Region Representative Christa Cupp Recognized as Leader in Public Health by the de Beaumont Foundation

Christa Cupp, public health educator serving the state’s western region for the Department of Health Services’ (DHS) Division of Public Health (DPH), was recognized today as one of the 40 Under 40 in Public Health by the de Beaumont Foundation. The new award is presented to public health professionals for their fresh perspectives, creative problem solving, and innovative health solutions in their communities. Christa is a new board member for the Wisconsin Public Health Association, beginning her term in January 2019.  WPHA has appreciated Christa's calm but innovative ideas and looks forward to her continued work on the board for her full term!

“It is an honor to be selected as one of the inaugural 40 Under 40 in Public Health,” said Cupp. “Collaboration and partnerships are critical to improving health and achieving the Department’s vision of everyone living their best life, and these are the driving forces behind my work.”


Each honoree has made significant contributions to their community and the field of public health. Working in DPH’s Office of Policy and Practice Alignment, Cupp provides technical assistance to local and tribal health departments in Wisconsin’s western region, supporting efforts to assess community health and develop improvement plans, promote national public health standards, and build public health system capacity.


Professionals from the nonprofit, business, and higher education sectors chose the awardees based on their demonstrated leadership, their contributions to their community’s health, and their collaboration with other organizations in public health and other sectors.

Founded in 1998, the de Beaumont Foundation focuses on the tools, partnerships, and policies that can help improve public health and strengthen the public health workforce.


Congratulations again to Christa!
