Everyone deserves to live a long and healthy life in a safe environment. To make this happen, we must tackle the causes of poor health and disease risk among individuals and within our communities. Where we live, work, worship and play impacts each of use and can determine our health and how long we live. In the workplace, let's partner across public and private sectors to make sure decisions are made with the public's health in mind. Within our communities, let's start new conversations with our neighbors and be advocates for positive change. Working together, we can build healthier communities and, eventually, the healthiest nation. But we need your help to get there.

During each day of National Public Health Week, we will focus on one public health topic. We believe these topic areas are critical to our future success in creating the healthiest nation.

Join us in observing National Public Health Week from April 1-7, 2019, and become part of a growing movement to create the healthiest nation in one generation.

During the week, we will celebrate the power of prevention, advocate for healthy and fair policies, share strategies for successful partnerships and champion the role of a strong public health system.

Each day of NPHW 2019 will focus on a public health topic. We hope you’ll use each topic to spark new conversations and engage new stakeholders in your community. Check out the daily themes for ways each of us can make a difference within each topic.
