Notice to Readers: National Public Health Week --- April 7--13, 2008
Since 1995, the first full week of April has been designated in the United States as National Public Health Week. This year's observance focuses on climate change and public health. During April 7--13, 2008, CDC, the American Public Health Association, and members of the public health community will conduct activities and host events that encourage the public, policy-makers, and public health professionals to take steps that will have positive effects on their individual health, the health of the nation, and the climate.
In conjunction with the observance, CDC has developed resources and a list of actions that public health agencies can take to respond to potential health effects of climate change. Additional information regarding climate change and National Public Health Week is available at http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/climatechange and http://www.nphw.org.
