National Public Health Week is a time to highlight the message of healthy living through activities in your communities. NPHW shines a spotlight on public health by acknowledging the ways that we need to work together to make healthy living easier where people live, learn, work and play. And NPHW gives us an opportunity to showcase the amazing work being done by partners throughout the country.
Our environments— the policies and systems in place —shape our communities and determine our access to health care, to nutritious foods and beverages and to parks and places to be active. Public health impacts every aspect of our lives, so we must work across sectors to ensure that we are creating and maintaining communities where everyone has the opportunity to be healthy.
This year, NPHW will take place April 3-9, 2017. Join us in celebrating during the week:
