They created a big bulletin board at the Health Department that has infographics from all of the different “sections” of the Health Department, and they also held a Public Health “Spirit Week”, where each day they dress up in a different theme (similar to homecoming week in high school)! Monday’s theme was “Tacky Day." They had fun and found it was a good way to start conversations about Public Health with their patients and other curious people!
