April 3-9 National Public Health Week

Did you know?

These statistics, provided by National Public Health Week (NPHW), demonstrate how conditions in your home can impact your health. NPHW is an annual observance to recognize the importance of public health, and this year it is being observed on April 3-9. The American Public Health Association (APHA) has served as the lead organizer of NPHW for nearly 20 years.

The theme of this year’s NPHW is “Healthiest Nation 2030,” with the goal of making the U.S. the healthiest nation in one generation. During this week, events will be hosted around the country demonstrating ways in which people can take an active role in achieving this goal.

During NPHW, APHA brings together communities across the United States to highlight issues that are important to improving health nationwide. This year’s campaign features information and strategies to help spread the word about public health and champion the role of a strong public health system.

Visit NPHW’s website and get involved in the various events in your community. Using the tools and tips on the website, you can learn how to join challenges, attend nearby events, host events or promote NPHW.

In the spirit of public health week, we remind you to stay safe and healthy. Join the movement today!
