National Public Health Week - Looking toward the future

4/1/2024 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." 

Public Health needs to take a fresh approach - one rooted in fairness and inclusivity. Picture this: a world where equity isn't just a buzzword, but a guiding principle. Communities are at the heart of decision making and actively shaping their health, not sidelined. Public Health's future is all about teaming up - joining forces with unexpected partners from different sectors and centering community voices. This future is about tearing down barriers, not just fixing problems but preventing them altogether. It's making sure every person has access to the support and care they need for a healthier life. 

Who can make a difference in the future of public health? YOU. Speak for health. Use your voice to advocate for policies that prioritize community well-being. Educate others about public health issues and get in touch with your lawmakers to enact change. Join community organizations. Getting involved with community organizations allows you to contribute to initiatives that promote health equity at the local level.
