Arkansas Public Health Week -  April 3 - 9, 2017 

Public Health Week: April 3 - 9, 2017

Public Health Week is observed during the first full week of April each year. During the week, health professionals connect with individuals and communities to show them how public health helps Arkansans improve their own health, protects them from epidemics and provides preventive health services in their communities. This year’s national theme, “Healthiest Nation 2030,” focuses on the steps it will take to make the US the healthiest nation in one generation – by 2030. ADH has made “Healthiest Arkansas 2030” the state’s theme this year. Below you’ll find the poster for this year. You can learn more about NPHW here:

National Public Health Week 2017 is a growing movement to create the healthiest nation in a generation. The mission of the Arkansas Department of Health is to protect and improve the well-being of all Arkansans. With that in mind, we developed a strategic map that focuses on 6 specific health issues. We've also created objectives to address those issues. By focusing on tobacco use, hypertension, immunizations, teen pregnancy, mental and community wellness, and childhood obesity, we can significantly improve the health and well-being of all Arkansans. By improving our state health, we improve the health of our nation. Join us in our effort to become the Healthiest State in the Nation by 2030!
