National Public Health Week - April 1-7

Posted
National Public Health Week Since 1995, when the first full week of April was declared National Public Health Week (NPHW), communities across the United States have observed NPHW as a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving our nation.

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. This year, we hope you'll join us in championing the work of public health and its significant return on investment (ROI).
