National Public Health Week 2018 

As an affiliate of the American Public Health Association (APHA), Colorado Public Health Association (CPHA) is looking forward to celebrating National Public Health Week 2018.  We will be celebrating National Public Health Week April 2-9, 2018 and we hope you’ll join us in engaging all communities and all sectors in a conversation about the role each of us can play to put good health within everyone’s reach.

Everyone deserves to live a long and healthy life in a safe environment. To make this happen, we must tackle the causes of poor health and disease risk among individuals and within our communities. Where we live, work, worship and play impacts each of use and can determine our health and how long we live. With that in mind, let’s partner across public and private spheres to create healthier people, families, communities and, eventually, the healthiest nation. In the workplace, let's partner across public and private sectors to make sure decisions are made with the public's health in mind. Within our communities, let's start new conversations with our neighbors and be advocates for positive change.

We can do it — if we work together. That's why the theme for NPHW 2018 is "Changing Our Future Together."
