National Public Health Week

This year the National Public Health Week is from April 5-11, 2021. Each year the American Public Health Association (APHA) brings together communities across the USA for National Public Health Week (NPHW) to recognize contributions and highlight issues we face as a nation. Keeping communities safe and healthy is public health’s top priority and with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to come together in these times of need. Although we are all physically distanced, NPHW 2021 will take place completely virtually with a theme of Building Bridges to Better Health. To stay more involved, here are this year’s daily themes: 

Monday: Rebuilding 

Tuesday: Advancing Racial Equity 

Wednesday: Strengthening Community 

Thursday: Galvanizing Climate Justice 

Friday: Constructing COVID-19 Resilience 

Saturday: Uplifting Mental Health and Wellness 

Sunday: Elevating the Essential and Health Workforce 

Additionally, you can visit the Public Health Newswire ( to view guest posts from APHA leaders and start new conversations with your neighbors to become advocates for positive change.
