Everything you need for a successful week!

This National Public Health Week, we hope you’ll join us in engaging all communities and all sectors in a conversation about the role each of us can play to put good health within everyone’s reach. Where we live, learn, work, worship and play impacts our health and our opportunity to ward off disease and injury. With that in mind, let’s partner across public and private spheres to create healthier people, families, communities and, eventually, the healthiest nation. We can do it — if we work together. That's why the theme for NPHW 2018 is "Changing Our Future Together."

Each day of NPHW 2018 will focus on a different public health topic that’s critical to creating the healthiest nation. We hope you’ll use each topic to spark new conversations and engage new stakeholders in your community. And, of course, every day of NPHW will be a day to celebrate, recognize and honor the contributions of America’s public health workers. 

Daily Themes

Monday: Behavioral Health

Tuesday: Communicable Diseases

Wednesday: Environmental Health

Thursday: Injury and Violence Prevention

Friday: Ensuring the Right to Health

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 2018, 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 collaborate and communicate across sectors about 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 2018!
