National Public Health Week 2019

Creating the Healthiest Nation: For science. For action. For health.


We're celebrating National Public Health Week!

During the first full week of April each year, the American Public Health Association brings communities together across the United States to celebrate National Public Health Week (NPHW) and:  
  • ​Recognize the contributions of public health! 
  • ​Highlight public health issues that are important to improving our nation! 
NPHW is a unique opportunity to work cross-sector in creating innovative ideas and directions for the future of our nation’s health. Each day of NPHW 2019 will focus on a public health topic. We hope you’ll use these topics to spark conversations and engage new stakeholders in your community.
  
Wednesday — Rural Health
Friday — Climate Change
Saturday and Sunday — Global Health​

In addition to campus-wide events on all three of our partner campuses (CU Anschutz, CSU and UNC), ColoradoSPH co-hosts local events and activities that are organized by our students and staff and our public health partners like the Colorado Public Health Association, Colorado Environmental Health Association, Public Health Nurses Association of Colorado, The Trailhead Institute, and the Colorado Association of Local Public Health Officials​.​

 
Join us for these NPHW Community Events that we co-sponsor!

The Culture of Data (CoD) conference brings together community members, academia, state/local government and nonprofit organizations that share a goal of achieving health equity.  Initiated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Minority Health (OMH) in 2002, Regional Minority Health Consultant Lorenzo Olivas led the collaboration for 11 years.  With conference themes such as the environment, healthcare, behavioral health and more, conference organizers sought always to respond to the emerging needs of the Colorado community, always to bring together those who wanted to collaborate to use data in the work to eliminate health disparities. See a schedule of events here​
