National Public Health Week - Civic Engagement

4/2/2024 11:11:00 AM

We are celebrating National Public Health Week, April 1-7, 2024, with this year's theme of "Protecting, Connecting and Thriving: We Are All Public Health." 

Civic engagement, the actions that we and our communities take to identify and address problems, shapes our opportunities to be healthy. By taking actions to get more civically engaged, like voting, we exercise our right to make decisions about our communities, like whether our neighborhoods have walkable sidewalks, how much funding goes to reproductive health clinics in our states and how prepared the nation's infrastructure is for future pandemics and disasters. 

Who can take action to help our communities become more civically engaged? YOU 

Vote, and encourage your friends, colleagues and neighbors to vote. Let your community members know how voting, as well as participation in town halls, public meetings and volunteer activities, will help shape local policy and strengthen community cohesion.
