National Public Health Week is only days away: Help raise awareness of preparedness on April 8

Each year, National Public Health Week is celebrated in April to promote public health. This year, the APHA-led event will be celebrated from April 7-13. Tuesday, April 8, is raising awareness of being prepared for disasters with a focus on “Don’t Panic.”
Disaster preparedness starts with community commitment and action — and that’s where you come in. NPHW offers a great opportunity for you to share information and hold events around preparedness. Check out some of the great activities that are planned around the nation already:
What will you be doing to raise awareness of preparedness? Leave a message in the comments on the Get Ready Blog, and submit your event to the NPHW calendar.
And after your event is over, send pictures to The Nation’s Health newspaper to be included in the NPHW round-up in the July issue.
