National Public Health Week (NPHW), an initiative of the American Public Health Association (APHA), is April 7-13. The 2014 NPHW theme, “Public Health: Start Here,” focuses on how public health starts at home, from maternal health to nutrition and emergency preparedness. Each day this week focuses on a different area of public health. The daily themes are included below.

  • Monday, April 7: Be healthy from the start – From maternal health and school nutrition to emergency preparedness, public health starts at home.
  • Tuesday, April 8: Don’t panic – Disaster preparedness starts with community-wide commitment and action.
  • Wednesday, April 9: Get out ahead – Prevention is now a nationwide priority.
  • Thursday, April 10: Eat well – The system that keeps our nation’s food safe and healthy is complex.
  • Friday, April 11: Be the healthiest nation in one generation – Best practices for community health come from around the globe.

The CDC has put together a digital press kit, filled with infographics, multimedia, and quotes from CDC experts on the importance of public health. View DPK.
