Organize on My Campus

Thursday, April 5 is this year's NPHW Student Day! What can your local campus do to help raise awareness about the value of public health and our work to create a healthier nation?

You can plan a rally, partner with another campus organization to host a seminar on prevention and active living, organize a research symposium for students to present scholarly and creative work, or invite local public health officials to campus to promote their campaigns and services.

There are countless ways to get involved and take action. By participating in NPHW and celebrating Student Day, you’re helping your generation serve as a model of public health!
