National Public Health Week 2018 was an inspiring week of events, conversations and celebrations nationwide. Some of APHA’s favorite NPHW moments were:

  • Hearing U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams speak at the NPHW Forum about the future of public health, partnerships, opioids, students, bringing communities together and more. Watch his speech and the rest of the Forum event.
  • Chatting with thousands of public health voices about #SpeakForHealth, health equity, mental health and education during the NPHW Twitter Chat. Read through the top moments and best responses on APHA's Public Health Newswire.
  • Student Day at George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health, where APHA’s Georges Benjamin and GWU Dean Lynn Goldman discussed the skills students will need to meet the future needs of advancing health in the U.S.

Our fact sheets are available year-round on the NPHW website so we can keep the momentum and learning going. And we look forward to celebrating with you again during NPHW 2019!
