Here comes National Public Health Week!

Ready? National Public Health Week is April 5-11.

“If every one of us commits to promoting good health in our communities, we can create a ripple effect from coast to coast. Through just one neighborhood that makes its public parks accessible, one municipality that launches a bike-helmet safety program, one group of people who join together to bring fresh foods to school, or one health center that offers a vaccination program, we can create a collage of public health successes across the country.”

NPHW is all about a healthier America – one community at a time. The NPHW web site includes the “A Healthier America: One Community at a Time Toolkit” full of resources, tips, and examples on:

  • Planning a Community Town Hall,
  • Planning an Online Event,
  • Working with Local Media,
  • Writing a Letter to the Editor,
  • How to Make Social Media Work for You,
  • Legislative Advocacy,

and more. You can also submit a NPHW event, and view events nationwide on the Event Map, and share a story about what you or your group is doing in the community.
