National Public Health Week

Since 1995, when the first full week of April was declared National Public Health Week (NPHW), communities across the United States have observed the time as an opportunity to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving the public’s health. It’s a time to unite around critical issues and focus our collective energy on the singular goal of helping people live longer, happier, healthier lives. Find out more at

Pitt Public Health joins APHA in observing National Public Health Week 2022 and the growing movement to create the healthiest nation in one generation. We’re celebrating the power of prevention, advocating for healthy and fair policies, sharing strategies for successful partnerships and championing the role of a strong public health system.
