April 7-13, 2008: National Public Health Week

Since 1996, APHA has organized National Public Health Week and developed campaigns to educate the public, policy-makers, and public health professionals about issues important to improving the public’s health. By making climate change the theme for 2008, the public health community is changing how society addresses this unprecedented challenge.
There is a direct connection between climate change and the health of our nation today. Yet few Americans are aware of the very real consequences of climate change in the health of our communities, our families and our children.
