As the nation’s public health agency, CDC works 24/7 to improve the health of the nation. During National Public Health Week (NPHW), APHA and CDC continue to work towards the mission of Healthiest Generation 2030.
Beginning on April 6, CDC’s social media profiles will be posting a few ways CDC is working in support of the #NPHW daily themes — Raising the Grade, Start from Zip, Build Momentum, Build Broader Connections, and Build on 20 Years of Success.
For example, for the Friday #NPHW theme, Build on 20 Years of Success, @CDCgov will tweet a link to CDC’s top ten public health achievements in the 20th Century, which reminds us of how far we have come, how we got there, and what we need to do to create a healthier nation.
CDC.gov homepage will promote National Public Health Week with a feature article that will highlight the daily themes, and link to information from across CDC’s Centers — highlighting diseases & conditions, tips for healthy living, workplace safety and health, and building broader communities and partnerships.
CDC is proud to join in with this Generation Public Health movement so that all people and all communities have the opportunity for a long, healthy life.
CDC works 24/7 saving lives, protecting people from health threats, and saving money through prevention. Whether these threats are global or domestic, chronic or acute, curable or preventable, natural disaster or deliberate attack, CDC is the nation’s health protection agency.
