During the first week of April, communities across the US observe National Public Health Week to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving our nation’s health.
Every year, the American Public Health Association develops new materials to educate the public, policymakers, and practitioners about public health and prevention. The 2019 NPHW theme is “For science. For action. For health.”
Each day of NPHW will focus on a public health topic. Use each topic to spark new conversations and engage new stakeholders in your community. Check out our daily themes for ways each of us can make a difference within each topic:
- Monday: Healthy Communities
- Tuesday: Violence Prevention
- Wednesday: Rural Health
- Thursday: Technology and Public Health
- Friday: Climate Change
- Saturday and Sunday: Global Health
Then, download the Healthiest Nation NPHW Fact Sheets to learn how you can promote conditions where everyone has the opportunity to be healthy.
Finally, RSVP to the official NPHW twitter chat on April 3 at 1pm CT to talk all things public health with the hashtag #NPHWChat.
