Get ready for National Public Health Week 2010

I know. It feels like we just celebrated National Public Health Week, but then again, it’s never too late to start planning for next year’s observation — especially since the theme has officially been announced! The theme for National Public Health Week 2010, to take place April 5–11, is “A Healthier America: One Community at a Time,” and will focus on making America the healthiest nation in one generation (if this sounds familiar, it’s because APHA officially has a campaign to accomplish this generational goal — check out the very cool video below.)

Also check out the National Public Health Week 2010 Web site now for info on how to start planning a week of raising public health awareness and building healthier communities where you live, work and play. Or if you’re with us in Philly, visit the National Public Health Week booth, #1442 in the Public Health Expo.
