The American Public Health Association (APHA), in support of National Public Health Week 2009 and its theme, “Building the Foundation for a Healthy America,” has released a new video series – “Why Public Health Matters.”
The videos feature public health professionals from around the nation sharing their views on public health. The topics they consider include the greatest public health successes, the relevance of public health, challenges facing public health, and much more.
Users can add their voices to the discussion by a submitting a personal story of what public health means to them.
National Public Health Week (NPHW), April 6-12, 2009, will focus on the role that public health must play in improving our nation’s health. More information about NPHW activities and about getting involved is available at http://www.nphw.org/nphw09/default.htm.
