It’s National Public Health Week and the public health community is once again rallying around the goal to make the U.S. the Healthiest Nation in One Generation- by 2030.
American’s are living 20 years longer than their grandparents’ generation, thanks largely to the work of public health, but the work is not over. People in other high income countries live longer and suffer fewer health issues than we do…but we’re poised to overcome that.
Join us in increasing awareness and broadening understanding of preventative actions to improve or protect our health.
This year, our focuses include:
- Building a nation of safe, healthy communities
- Helping all young people graduate from high school
- Increasing economic mobility which leads to better health
- Looking at social justice as it relates to health
- Giving everyone the choice of healthy food
- Preparing for the health effects of climate change
- Providing quality health care for everyone
We invite you to learn more about what is happening locally in Gallatin County, and to find ways you can help make our community one of the healthiest in the nation! http://healthygallatin.org/healthy-people-families/national-public-health-week-2/
