Happy National Public Health Week!

It’s that time again!!

Here’s an announcement from the American Public Health Association to kick off this wonderful week:

Building the Foundation for a Healthy America

Monday, April 6, 2009

Today marks the beginning of National Public Health Week 2009! As you may already know, this year’s theme is Building the Foundation for a Healthy America. Starting this week (April 6-12), join others around the nation in working to raise awareness of public health’s critical role in ensuring a healthy America.

Let’s face it – as a nation we’re not nearly as healthy as we should be. Compared to other developed nations, we’re lagging far behind.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. With your help, we can make America the healthiest nation in just one generation.

This year, NPHW kicks off with the launch of an exciting, new viral video campaign. The Healthiest Nation in One Generation video tells the story of the many ways that public health touches our lives. Check it out, and share it with your network of friends, family and colleagues. Help us reach our goal of 100,000 views by the end of this week to celebrate National Public Health Week!

We can make this the healthiest nation in one generation. We all have to do our part. What will you do?
