This is National Public Health Week

This week we mark National Public Health Week and recognize the importance of Public Health! This year’s theme, “Protecting, Connecting, and Thriving: We Are All Public Health,” reminds us that we are all responsible for improving public health in our communities.

Public Health is more than just health care. It’s making sure our food and water are safe to eat and drink. It’s also the relationships we foster in our communities. We’re all interconnected. When we all come together to support public health, all of us — individuals, families, communities and the public health field can achieve the goals of public health.
