National Public Health Week is April 1-7, 2024, with the theme of "Protecting, Connecting and Thriving: We Are All Public Health."

Our focus is not just the ways public health serves our communities - protecting our access to clean water and air, to nutritious and safe foods, to the right and ability to access essential health services -- but the ways our communities flourish when they have their needs met. We're covering everything from the basics of safe and healthy schools to the tools that connect us, even when we're miles apart. As we join together and celebrate Public Health Week, we want everyone to know that they can make their communities healthier, safer and stronger when we support and stay engaged with one another. When we connect with each other, whether with our neighbors or our lawmakers, we can build relationships that protect our health and enrich our lives. One of the goals is to look at how our cultural connections and intersections affect our health, well-being and the public health system that cares for us. We're encouraging everyone - public health professionals, students, elected leaders, and the public - to step in and do what they can to make our world a  more equitable, safe, healthy and just place. 

We need everyone in our communities working together if we're going to improve our nation's health. By building our connections, we build new possibilities for all of us to thrive together.
