National Public Health Week

National Public Health Week (NPHW) is April 5th-11th,2021. Every year during the first full week of April, The American Public Health Association (APHA) brings communities from across the nation together in order to observe this week to recognize all of the contributions the public health community has achieved and showcase issues that need to be changed to improve the lives of everyone in the United States. Even though we may have to be physically distant from each other, doesn’t mean we cannot come together. This is why the 2021 theme for the week is “Building Bridges to Better Health.”

The top priority of public health officials has always been to make sure our communities were safe and healthy. This is more crucial now more than ever. This year, NPHW will be held completely virtual. Below is a list of themes and fact sheets for each day. In order to participate in national events, visit the National Public Health Week events page.
