2023 NPHWCentering and Celebrating Cultures in Health

MPHA and APHA invite you to join us as we celebrate National Public Health Week 2023!

The theme this year is “Centering and Celebrating Cultures in Health”. Feeling like we belong, being a part of our communities and fostering cultural connections supports our health and the quality of our lives. We want everyone to know they can make their communities healthier, safer and stronger when we support and stay engaged with one another. We are focusing not just on what we can do as individuals, but what we can do as communities to protect, prioritize and influence the future of public health.

This year, one of our goals is to look at how our cultural connections and intersections affect our health, well-being and the public health system that cares for us. We’re encouraging everyone — public health professionals, students, faculty, policy makers, elected leaders, and the general public — to step in and do what they can to make our world a more equitable, safe, healthy and just place.
