This year the National Public Health Week is from April 5-11, 2021. Each year the American Public Health Association (APHA) brings together communities across the USA for National Public Health Week (NPHW) to recognize contributions and highlight issues we face as a nation. Keeping communities safe and healthy is public health’s top priority and with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to come together in these times of need. Although we are all physically distanced, NPHW 2021 will take place completely virtually with a theme of Building Bridges to Better Health. To stay more involved, here are this year’s daily themes:
Tuesday: Advancing Racial Equity
Wednesday: Strengthening Community
Thursday: Galvanizing Climate Justice
Friday: Constructing COVID-19 Resilience
Saturday: Uplifting Mental Health and Wellness
Sunday: Elevating the Essential and Health Workforce
