This year, with the recent release of the National Prevention Strategy, National Public Health Week (NPHW) will address the issue of prevention and wellness to ensure that all is being done to improve the nation's health. Strategies will focus on preventing chronic diseases, which cause Americans to miss 2.5 billion days of work year each year; injuries related to violence; and unintentional injuries, such as motor vehicle crashes, poisonings, and burns.
Uniting around this year's theme—A Healthier America Begins Today: Join the Movement—NPHW will work to encourage more Americans and their communities to take preventive measures to help improve their lives. Use NPHW's 2012 toolkit, logos, and other resources to spread the word this week about public health's critical role in making America healthier.
