APHA Focuses on Threat Awareness for National Public Health Week

The American Public Health Association and allied organizations are encouraging Americans to prepare effectively for public health threats of all types during National Public Health Week, which officially began yesterday and continues through April 8. The theme this year is "Preparedness and Public Health Threats: Addressing the Unique Needs of the Nation's Vulnerable Populations." Communities are exploring ways to connect vulnerable populations--including mothers with young children, hourly workers, and people with chronic illnesses--with resources to help them prepare for health emergencies, APHA says.

This is the 12th annual week. Last year's focused on ways that Americans can build healthier communities and address health threats associated with built environments, including air pollution and neighborhood design. For more information on National Public Health Week 2007, go to www.nphw.org.
