National Public Health Week | April 3-9. 2017
For over 20 years the first full week of April marks National Public Health Week, an annual opportunity to join communities together in recognition of public health contributions and call attention to current critical health topics. This year's theme, an initiative of the American Public Health Association, is taking steps towards the Healthiest Nation in One Generation - by 2030.
Sacramento County's Division of Public Health invites community partners and individuals to participate in activities towards building healthy, resilient communities and work to achieve our county-wide theme: Be Healthy Together Sacramento. The Division of Public Health will use this occasion to raise awareness of priority health issues such as health disparities, infectious disease outbreaks, and chronic diseases that impact the health of the community.
To celebrate these health goals Public Health and its community partners are hosting free, open to the public events during Public Health Week that are designed to educate and encourage healthy behaviors. Help us build a healthier, happier Sacramento County by attending one of the scheduled events below:
