Save the date! Join VDH and the American Public Health Association in celebrating National Public Health Week.

Public health is crucial to our society. It counters threats to our individual and collective health and promotes practices that help every American live as long and as well as they can. That’s why VDH is excited to be a part of National Public Health Week 2024, celebrated April 1-7. This year, we’re joining the American Public Health Association in “Protecting, Connecting and Thriving: We Are All Public Health.”

So how can you get involved? Celebrate and reinforce gratitude and support for public health and advocate for services that support community and well-being for all. Look for ways to strengthen your community connections, locally and globally. There are countless ways to make your voice heard and become part of the movement for public health!

For more information, and to make connections, join VDH, APHA and NPHW across social media. Learn more about this year’s daily themes, and don’t forget to RSVP to events throughout the week. Let your voice be heard! You can also check out APHA’s toolkit for other ways you can keep the momentum going in your community.

Join us as we promote effective policy and practice and build a brighter, healthier future for all!
