National Pubic Health Week

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a critical reminder of the importance of public health for assuring the conditions where all can be healthy. Each year during the month of April, the American Public Health Association brings together communities across the United States to observe National Public Health Week (NPHW). This is a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving our nation's health. This year, NPHW will be celebrated April 4-10, 2022. The national theme is Public Health is Where You Are.
