How did your agency celebrate?

Submityour creative activities from National Public Health Week.

This year National Public Health Week will be celebrated from April 6 to April 12.  The theme “Healthiest Nation 2030” focuses on creative ways everyone can help make the United States the healthiest nation in one generation.

Daily themes:  Monday; Raising the Grade
                          Tuesday; Starting from Zip       
                          Wednesday; Building Momentum 
                          Thursday; Building Broader Communities          
                          Friday; Building on 20 Years of Success                             Friday will also be National Public Health Week Student Day.

I am doing things a little different this year; there will table(s) set up at the Public Health Conference to display the activities your agency held during National Public Health Week. Attendees at conference can then review the displays and vote.  The winner will be announced at the banquet on Thursday evening.  There will be a table set up with a ballot box in the registration area.  Your display can be a scrap book, posters, etc.  How you display your activities is your decision.

I need you to let me know by August 21, 2015 if you plan on having a display.  If you have activities from National Public Health Week you would like displayed but no one from your agency is attending conference, please let me know so I can work with you to have your display set up.

APHA website about National Public Health Weeks is www.nphw.org. They have suggestions for the daily themes and Logo’s that can be downloaded.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Hope to see you at conference.
