IT'S NATIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH WEEK!

Join us as we celebrate this year’s National Public Health Week (NPHW), “A Healthier America Begins Today!” Governor Herbert has proclaimed April 2-8, 2012, as Public Health Week in Utah and you can help raise awareness of prevention and wellness measures in your community by sharing the messages you’ll be receiving. Here's what UPHA has planned for the week:

  • Highlight NPHW activities across Utah and the nation.
  • Highlight preventive measures to live longer and healthier lives. Help spread the word by sharing the information through Facebook, Twitter, email and good old-fashioned face-to-face conversations. Each message is another step in the right direction toward improving the health and well-being of Utahns.
  • Public health-themed Amazing Race/Photo Scavenger Hunt for public health and health promotion students. Race participants highlighted public health items, ideas and concepts onTuesday, April 3, in Sugarhouse using "This is Public Health" stickers. See the winners and photos on Facebook and our NPHW page.
