National Public Health Week April 3-7, 2017
National Public Health Week is a time to promote the benefits of healthy, vibrant communities. NPHW shines a spotlight on public health, highlighting how far we have come as well as acknowledging how much more we need to do to make healthy living easier where people live, learn, work and play.And NPHW gives us an opportunity to showcase the amazing work being done by partners throughout the country.
Our environments— the policies and systems in place —shape our communities and determine our access to health care, to nutritious foods and beverages and to parks and places to be active. Public health impacts every aspect of our lives, so we must work across sectors to ensure that we are creating and maintaining communities where everyone has the opportunity to be healthy. NPHW is an initiative of the American Public Health Association.
