It’s the fourth day of National Public Health Week (NPHW) and today’s theme is “Be the Healthiest Nation in One Generation.”

A few years ago, APHA put together a video that perfectly explains today’s theme. Some of the statistics are a few years old, but the message is still very relevant.


Apple in handsIt’s the fourth day of National Public Health Week (NPHW) and today’s theme is “Eat Well.”

Public health issues surrounding food include not only what we eat, but where we get it and how it’s produced.

These questions are so important, the Johns Hopkins Public Health magazine devoted this year’s special spring issue to food. In the web edition, you can read about bringing healthy food to urban food deserts, the problems of industrial farming, researchers trying to avoid future famines and more.

It’s great lunchtime reading. Feel free to browse while you eat your salad!

Runner at the starting blockIt’s the third day of National Public Health Week (NPHW) and today’s theme is “Get Out Ahead.”

According to NPHW, seven in ten deaths in the U.S are related to preventable diseases like obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and cancer. So today is all about prevention.

Eat healthy. Start exercising. Stop smoking.

Don’t know where to begin?

Check out the resources on the NPHW “Get Out Ahead” page.

When you’re done, see what’s being done at Hopkins regarding nutrition, childhood obesity and global tobacco control.

DisasterToday is the second day of National Public Health Week (NPHW) and the theme is “Don’t Panic.”

Disaster preparedness is a crucial component of public health. And in the NPHW context, disaster doesn’t just mean earthquakes and super storms. It can mean home fires, Internet safety and pandemic flu.

Visit APHA’s Get Ready campaign to see how you and your family can be more prepared.

And visit the Johns Hopkins Center for Public Health Preparedness to see what Hopkins’ researchers are doing to “not panic.”
