National Public Health Week 2015
The 2015 National Public Health Week theme, “Healthiest Nation 2030: Let’s make America the healthiest nation in one generation,” calls on the public health community to address major issues including poverty, education and the environment that have a profound effect on our health. To achieve this goal, we need to work with an even broader range of partners. When we unite, tremendous success follows.
During NPHW, April 6-12, communities across the country will coordinate local events, educate the public and advocate for meaningful change. For 20 years, APHA has served as the lead organizer of NPHW — and the campaign is just one of our many programs and initiatives.
APHA strengthens the profession of public health; fosters understanding, engagement and support for key public health issues; and directly influences public policy to improve global health. APHA champions the health of all people and all communities.
Donate today to National Public Health Week and be a part of creating the Healthiest Nation.
