logo, National Public Health WeekWith less than a month until National Public Health Week, our world looks very different than it did when we began planning. Events have been postponed, canceled or modified in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. But with everyone's mind on public health more than ever, NPHW is still on! 

Check out these ways to celebrate NPHW while maintaining social distance and keeping our communities healthier:

  • Turn your in-person panel and conversation events into webinars. Online platforms like Zoom and GoToMeeting have free versions of their software to make connecting over the web easy and fun.
  • Get more social. Post our social media shareables, or make your own with our templates, to get your message out to as many people as possible. Don’t forget to RSVP for the April 8 Twitter Chat! Our questions are posted online now.
  • Find movement opportunities at home. The Billion Steps Challenge doesn’t have to stop. You can rack up the steps moving around your home. Try YouTube videos of different physical activities, and then use the Walker Tracker app to convert them into steps. That’s progress!
  • Focus on health at home. Share reputable resources about protecting yourself from COVID-19 with your neighbors. Post Get Ready fact sheets in your apartment building or share our videos on your community listserv.

With public health the topic of the day worldwide, see how the current situation applies to our National Public Health Week daily themes.

Now, more than ever, is the time to support public health!
