National Public Health Week 2010 focuses on “A Healthier America: One Community at a Time”

Since 1995, the American Public Health Association has organized the first full week in April as National Public Health Week.  Over the course of the week, APHA develops a national awareness and advocacy campaign to inform the public and policy-makers about issues related to that year’s theme.  The theme for 2010 is “A Healthier America: One Community at a Time.”  There is a different focus for every day of the week:

Monday – “A healthier America – and YOU!”
Tuesday – “Your Community: The impact our community’s health has on the nation.”
Wednesday – “Your School: How education and school policies can improve students’ health.”
Thursday – “Your Workplace: How healthy employees and healthy businesses can effect real change.”
Friday – “Your Nation: How the nations’ health is dependent on all individuals and communities.”
