National Public Health Week is this week. This year’s theme, Public Health Is Where You Are, celebrates what we know is true: The places where we are, physically, mentally, and societally, affect our health and our lives. As we celebrate the 27th NPHW, April 4-10, we want everyone to know they can make their communities healthier and safer for all. And as we move slowly back toward gathering in person, we’re focusing not just on what we can do as individuals, but what we can do as communities to protect and prioritize public health.
This NPHW, we’re taking a look at the intersections of our lives that affect our health and well-being. And we’re encouraging everyone — public health professionals, students, elected leaders, and the general public — to step in and do what they can to make our world a more equitable, safe, healthy, and just place.
Makin’ it Happen will be recognizing the work of public health and taking part in the week by posting on social media and sharing our public health partner’s content.
