Rutgers Celebrates National Public Health Week

The Rutgers School of Public Health is celebrating National Public Health Week with a Public Health Symposium and other activities promoting the Healthiest Nation 2030 initiative. The 22nd Annual Public Health Symposium, “Communicating the Science of Public Health,” which will be held on April 3, will feature guest lecturers, poster presentations, and exhibits. The focus of the symposium is to increase the ability of public health professionals to communicate science in a manner that is clear, understandable, and perceived as credible by their audience. Speakers will discuss public health message tailoring and the importance of storytelling when conveying research to the general public. Student posters will feature research on meditation, vaccination, and other topics. On April 9, Rutgers School of Public Health students, faculty, staff, and friends are teaming-up for the Rutgers Unite Half Marathon & 8K to support APHA’s 1 Billion Steps Challenge. Throughout the week, students, faculty, and staff will also be encouraged to participate in various social media contests and share how they will join the movement to create the healthiest nation in one generation by using the hashtags #NPHW2017 and #HealthiestNation2030.
