Americans, you need to take better care of yourselves. Most of us who feel passionate about healthy lifestyles know this, which is why we fight so hard to schedule you for screenings, sign you up for health care, help you put down that cigarette, and encourage you to watch your diets.
Every April, people who feel passionate about public health come together as part of National Public Health Week in an effort to understand the issues and strengthen policies. The goal is to make America the healthiest nation in the world by 2030 – just one generation away. The effort, organized by the American Public Health Association, “develops a national campaign to educate the public, policymakers, and practitioners about issues related to each year's theme.”
It’s pretty fun; there are classes, runs, health fairs, forums – a little something across the country for the people who really care. CHWTraining is a partner, so stay tuned for news about our participation.
View the initiative, post your public health events, check out the activities of others, and unite to build healthier communities across the United States:
