Americans are living 20 years longer than their grandparents' generation, largely thanks to the work of public health. Yet people in many other high-income countries live longer and suffer fewer health issues than we do. This is the defining challenge of our generation — a challenge that we, the public health community, are uniquely positioned to help overcome.

To ensure everyone has a chance at a long and healthy life, we must tackle the underlying causes of poor health and disease risk. Those causes are rooted in how and where we live, learn, work and play. That's why, during National Public Health Week 2017, Generation Public Health is rallying around a goal of making the U.S. the Healthiest Nation in One Generation — by 2030.

In April, we'll create a new groundswell of support for the changes that must be made within our health system to realize this goal.

Get started here by accessing all the tools and tips you'll need for a successful National Public Health Week 2017!
