Tallahassee, Fla. – The Florida Department of Health in Lee is celebrating National Public Health Week (NPHW) from April 2-8. This year’s theme is “Changing Our Future Together,” which highlights the importance of engaging communities and partners in all sectors as public health workers strive to put health within everyone’s reach. This week is also a time to celebrate the contributions of the people who are dedicated to public health.

Each day of NPHW focuses on a different public health topic that is critical to ensuring healthy communities. Public health workers in DOH-Lee are working to meet the specific needs of our community members guided by our Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). Our CHIP includes strategies that address each crucial health area identified by NPHW.

  • Monday: Behavioral Health
  • Tuesday: Communicable Diseases
  • Wednesday: Environmental Health
  • Thursday: Injury and Violence Prevention
  • Friday: Ensuring the Right to Health
