National Public Health Week 2014

National Public Health Week 2014 logo

Each year during the first full week of April, the American Public Health Association (APHA) celebrates National Public Health Week (NPHW) in an effort to highlight the public health contributions to the community as well as issues still facing the nation. Each day this week (April 7-11), NPHW will focus on a different theme:

Monday 4/7 – Be Healthy From the Start (public health starts at home)

Tuesday 4/8 – Don’t Panic (disaster preparedness)

Wednesday 4/9 – Get Out Ahead (education and prevention)

Thursday 4/10 – Eat Well (nutrition and health)

Friday 4/11 – Be the Healthiest Nation in One Generation (public policy and looking ahead) 

In addition to these daily themes, NPHW is also hosting a new online event–the NPHW Face Off. From the news bulletin:

“Each weekday of NPHW, APHA will select two partner events to feature as “events of the day” and will promote the events on social media through an online voting “face off.” Each morning, APHA will share the two selected events on APHA’s Facebook page. Voters can then “like” the photo of the event they are most excited about. At the end of the day, the photo that has the most “likes” wins. The winning event will be announced the following morning on APHA’s Facebook page.”
