National Public health Week (3rd-9th)


Join us in celebrating National Public Health Week 2017 and become part of a 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.

Join Generation Public Health

Despite the tremendous improvements public health has made in the 20th Century, Americans live shorter lives and suffer more health issues than people in other high-income countries. For example we rank 34th in life expectancy. We need to work together to improve health and well-being. That’s why APHA created Generation Public Health. We’re a growing movement of people, organizations and communities collaborating across sectors to create the healthiest nation in one generation.

Take the pledge to help create a healthier America! 

We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity for a long and healthy life. We promise to support efforts to improve the social and environmental factors that affect everyone’s health and limit the ability for many people to make healthy choices.
It is only when we come together that we are strong enough to create the healthiest nation in one generation.
We are Generation Public Health!

Here’s why other people signed the pledge:

“To empower others to take control of their health and wellbeing”

“To help make the world a better place for my daughter to grow up in!”

“For myself, my children and husband, and the next generations of our family.”

“Because the health of all is important!”

“Because I am passionate about the well being of those that surround me.”

“Because health is a human right.”

“To create a healthier life for myself and my little ones!”

“To promote health equity.”

“One person, one change, one movement can make a difference.”

“Because health is crucial to accessing our potential as a human family
