National Public Health Week is now!

April 1-7 is National Public Health Week.


Each year, NPHW focuses its effort on a different theme, and this year’s theme is Public Health is ROI: Save Lives, Save Money. The 2013 NPHW theme was developed to highlight the value of prevention and the importance of well-supported public health systems in preventing disease, saving lives and curbing health care spending.

The American Public Health Association (APHA) serves as the organizer of NPHW and develops a national campaign to educate the public, policymakers and practitioners about issues related to each year’s theme. APHA creates new NPHW materials each year that can be used during and after NPHW to raise awareness about public health and prevention.
