As the COVID-19 pandemic all too painfully showed, science, education, and action are all vital to public health. National Public Health Week, which is April 5-11, highlights the urgent need to “Build Bridges to Better Health”.
It is the 25th anniversary of National Public Health Week (NPHW), which was created by the American Public Health Association. This year, NPHW (and World Health Day) both take place in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Public health is a vital cornerstone for people in every community to live long and healthy lives in safe environments.
