National Public Health Week is April 1-7

Mar 19, 2013

National Public Health Week is right around the corner, and the American Public Health Association (APHA) needs your help to make this another successful campaign. Scheduled for April 1-7, National Public Health Week 2013 is focusing on “Public Health is ROI - Save Lives, Save Money.”

The theme is a reference to the public health return on investment, or ROI, which shows that for every dollar spent to prevent health problems in a community, $5.60 in later medical treatment is averted. The 2013 NPHW Partners Toolkit, fact sheets and other resources are available on the NPHW website.
