Public Health is Where You Are

Where we live impacts our communities’ health. And we can make our communities healthier, stronger and safer! We’re excited to announce our 2022 NPHW theme is “Public Health is Where You Are.”

Start thinking about

  • Having support and feeling included within our social communities can have a positive effect on our mental and physical health. This lets us give back to our communities’ health and make it stronger.
  • While there are public health resources available where we live, some barriers may make it hard for us to get and use them. These could be physical, mental, financial, cultural and language barriers.
  • Some communities have had a harder time than others. It is important to listen to the Black community and other communities of color, the LGBTQ+ community and people with disabilities. This way we can make sure public health is fair for all.

If you're already excited

We’ll have new fact sheets and toolkits ready for you in January 2022. In the meantime, check out 2021’s NPHW fact sheets on “Building Bridges to Better Health.”

APHA has been hosting NPHW events entirely online, to protect our partners and neighbors during the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about what APHA is doing, and what you can do to prepare without panic.

Working together, we can build healthier communities and, eventually, the healthiest nation. We need your help to get there. Join us!
