National Public Health Week

April 7 to 11 is National Public Health Week. Begun in 1995, this is an opportunity for registered dietitian nutritionists and dietetic technicians, registered to partner with public health agencies. The Academy's Public Health/Community Nutrition Task Force encourages dietetic practice groups, member interest groups and affiliates to get involved. This year's theme is "Public Health: Starts Here."

The American Public Health Association offers a toolkit to help organize a NPHW event.

Each day of Public Health Week follows a different theme (especially relevant for Academy members – see Thursday's theme):

  • Monday, April 7: Be healthy from the start. From maternal health and school nutrition to emergency preparedness, public health starts at home. Let us show you around.
  • Tuesday, April 8: Don't panic. Disaster preparedness starts with community-wide commitment and action. We’re here to help you weather the unexpected.
  • Wednesday, April 9: Get out ahead. Prevention is now a nationwide priority. Let us show you where you fit in.
  • Thursday, April 10: Eat well. The system that keeps our nation’s food safe and healthy is complex. We can guide you through the choices.
  • Friday, April 11: Be the healthiest nation in one generation. Best practices for community health come from around the globe. We have a world of public health to show you.

Members can also contact your local public health agencies to promote healthy food choices.
