It’s National Public Health Week!

Please join us in celebrating National Public Health Week 2016 (April 4-10) – Healthiest Nation 2030

During the first full week of April each year, APHA unites communities across the United States to celebrate National Public Health Week.  This is a time to recognize importance of public health and highlight issues that are essential to improving our nation.

To demonstrate our commitment to public health we have created a series of infographics with tips and information to inspire a healthier nation.
