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.

National Public Health Week is a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving our nation’s health. Every year, APHA develops a national campaign to educate the public, policymakers and practitioners about issues related to each year’s theme. 

Hofstra University is proud to participate in National Public Health Week in support of a growing movement to create the healthiest nation in one generation. Each year, Hofstra celebrates the power of prevention, advocates for healthy and fair policies, shares strategies for successful partnerships, and champions the role of a strong public health system through a series of events across campus.
