Join APHA as we celebrate National Public Health Week and build bridges to better health!

The last year has been challenging for all of us. As we look toward the 26th anniversary of NPHW, April 5-11, we know public health needs public support, now more than ever. We don’t need to get back to where we were -- we need to create connections and listen to community leaders who will help us build a strong society that prioritizes health for everyone.

We know public health is built from the grassroots up. This year, we’re focusing on how we strengthen and support the very foundation of our health and our communities. By working together, we can achieve health equity and, eventually, become the healthiest nation. We need your help to get there.

Each day of NPHW will focus on a different piece of the bridges that connect us -- or keep us apart. We hope that, each day, you’ll see how you fit into building stronger, healthier communities. And we hope you’ll join in! Public health needs the public if it’s going to be successful. This week, we continue the work. Even as we are physically distant, we know that we’re all working together, and we look forward to celebrating with you this year
