  National Public Health Week 2013

Public Health week is April 1-7, 2013 and it is zeroing in on two common threads: Save Lives, Save Money. Public health plays a role in raising awareness of prevention in keeping all communities healthy and safe.

It's hard to picture our lives without a strong public health system. From the time we wake up until we tuck ourselves in at night, the benefits of public health make all of our lives healthier, safer and better. Whether it's the drinkable water that flows from our kitchen sinks, the safe food we buy at the local grocery or the clean air we breathe on an afternoon walk, the benefits of public health are - quite literally- all around us.

We all have a role in supporting public health and in putting prevention to work in our lives, whether it be at home, at school, at work, while we're on the move or in our communities. By making and supporting the healthy choice, we can be living examples of the public health return on investment.
