National Public Health Week 2014

Public Health: Start Here

Public health is everywhere, every day — 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year — from the food we eat, to the air we breathe and the water we drink. From the transportation we take to the broader communities where we live, work and play, public health is the foundation of a healthy society. The opportunities ahead of us are awesome, and overwhelming.

National Public Health Week brings a coordinated focus to addressing important public health issues that will improve our nation. The 2014 theme, Public Health: Start Here, will draw the nation’s attention to topics including school nutrition, disaster preparedness, prevention, food safety and community health. During NPHW, April 7-13, hundreds of communities across the country will coordinate local events, promote and educate the public and advocate for meaningful change.

For almost 20 years, APHA has served as the lead organizer of NPHW — and the campaign is just one of our many programs and initiatives. We strengthen the profession of public health; foster understanding, engagement and support for key public health issues; and directly influence public policy to improve global health. APHA champions the health of all people and all communities. Donate today and support public health programs such as NPHW.

Help us create the healthiest nation in one generation. Start here.
