This week (April 2 – April 8, 2018) is National Public Health Week (NPHW)! The initiative created by the American Public Health Association promotes conversation on emerging public health topics. This year’s theme, “Changing Our Future Together,” promotes dialogue across disciplines and professionals while joining Generation Public Health’s goal for making the U.S. the healthiest nation by 2030.
The NPHW website provides a toolkit that organizations can use to become involved in the celebration. Each day spotlights a different public health theme, today focussing on environmental health. The website contains further information regarding events, promotion of NPHW, daily themes, Steps Challenge, and Healthiest Nation pledge and fact sheets.
