National Public Health Week

During the first full week of April each year, the American Public Health Association (APHA) brings together communities across the United States to observe National Public Health Week (NPHW). Each year, APHA assigns daily themes to NPHW that seek to tackle the underlying causes of poor health and disease risk and bring awareness to ensure that everyone has the chance to live a long and healthy life.

The Public Health Program's MPH Student Ambassadors coordinate events for NPHW across Virginia Tech's campus and in the surrounding community for students, faculty/staff, and community members.
