Thanks-Giving Day Arrives for Public Health Officials

Today is Public Health Thank You Day, a day to thank our friends and colleagues working in public health for all they do.

"We recognize our health protection heroes who work tirelessly every day to promote the health of people of all ages," said Dr. Julie Gerberding, CDC director. "The 14,000 public health professionals at the CDC say thank you to each of these heroes on the frontlines of health. As a result of their dedication, we are all able to live healthier, safer, and longer lives."

Joining in that recognition is Research!America, an alliance formed to advocate for strong, sustained federal funding and policies that provide a favorable climate for health-related research. "As Thanksgiving approaches, Research!America and leading U.S. public health organizations are asking Americans to give special thanks to their federal, state, and local public health heroes on Monday, November 24, Public Health Thank You Day," said Mary Woolley, Research!America president and CEO. "All too frequently we forget that it is our public health workforce that is working every day to keep us safe and healthy. These unsung heroes help to keep our water clean, our food safe, and our nation protected."
