National Public Health Week- April 1 - 5



“Creating the Healthiest Nation: For science. For action. For health.”

Check out and use our new NPHW fact sheets, which correspond with each of this year’s daily themes: Healthy Communities, Violence Prevention, Rural Health, Technology and Public Health, Climate Change and Global Health. The fact sheets offer info and statistics to help promote #NPHW on social media and foster conversations about creating the healthiest nation.

Attend a NPHW event in your community — the official NPHW website has a list of events happening around the country. (Many state and local health departments, as well as schools of public health and state public health associations, host NPHW events.)

APHA is hosting its own NPHW events that we hope you’ll join, too.

On Monday, April 1, APHA kicks off NPHW with a forum on “Building Healthy Communities from the Grassroots,” featuring Joia Crear-Perry, MD, founder of the National Birth Equity Collaborative, and other speakers. RSVP to attend or register to watch the webcast.

On Tuesday, April 2, APHA will host a webinar with the Aetna Foundation and U.S. News & World Report on the recently released Healthiest Communities ranking. RSVP now. If you’re in Washington, D.C., don’t forget to check out our Trivia Night at 6 p.m. at Board Room!

On Wednesday, April 3, 2-3 p.m. ET, @NPHW will host its annual #NPHWchat, where we’ll be talking all things public health. RSVP today for the biggest conversation in public health!

On Thursday, April 4, NPHW Student Day celebrates our future public health leaders with a special event and webcast on transitioning into the professional public health world.

On Friday, April 5, APHA’s Center for Climate, Health and Equity will join with young people to focus on how they’re taking action on climate change. Check out our Climate Change fact sheet for ways you can take action.

On Saturday & Sunday of NPHW, APHA will join fellow health organizations in celebrating World Health Day, April 7, and its theme of “Universal Health: Everyone, Everywhere.” For more info, check out PAHO’s resources.
