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, 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.”

Last Friday was our first of two Admitted Student Visitors Days.

As you can see, it was a great event!

If you’re an admitted student and you missed last week’s event, there is still time to register for the April 4th event (login and password required)!  If you’re unable to make the trip to Baltimore, the major event sessions were recorded.  These recordings will be posted to the Admitted Student Website in the near future (login and password required).
