Thank you for Celebrating National Public Health Week 2020 with Us!

For 25 years, National Public Health Week has recognized the contributions of public health and highlighted issues that are important to improving our nation’s health. It’s public health workers who are tracking the coronavirus — and working to stop it from spreading. Every year, it’s public health workers who educate people about the flu and give out the flu vaccine. Public health workers set safety standards in the workplace to protect employees. They develop school nutrition programs to make sure kids have access to healthy food.

Public health affects nearly every part of our lives. It was public health that led to laws requiring the use of seatbelts, guidelines protecting clean air and water and laws against smoking in restaurants and bars. 

Take a look back on each of the daily themes that were featured during NPHW. We consider these topic areas crucial to moving forward and creating the healthiest nation.
