During the first full week of April each year, the American Public Health Association brings together communities across the United States to observe National Public Health Week (NPHW).
The School of Public Health and Health Professions celebrates NPHW this April 6 to 12 with a schedule of virtual activities. Join us for any of the week’s happenings to learn about public health issues and about how to keep yourself and others healthy.
