Friday Five – National Public Health Week
The American Public Health Association (@PublicHealth) brings together communities across the United States to observe National Public Health Week (@NPHW) as a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving our nation’s health. This year’s theme, Public Health Is Where You Are, celebrates what we know is true: The places where we are, physically, mentally and societally, affect our health and our lives. This week’s Friday Five highlights some information and activities for the 27th NPHW, happening next week April 4-10.
