National Public Health Week 2011

"It only takes a moment for an injury to happen," and that's why this year's National Public Health Week (NPHW) will focus on helping Americans to live an injury-free lifestyle at home, at work, in the community, and anywhere else that people are "on the move." This year's theme is entitled, "Safety is No Accident" and the event is planned for April 4th through April 10th, 2011. The Sussex County Department of Environmental and Public Health Services, together with the American Public Health Association (APHA), would like to take this opportunity to promote safety and ways to prevent injury and violence across the County by celebrating National Public Health Week.

Each year since 1995, the APHA has designated the first week in April as National Public Health Week to acknowledge public health issues and recognize ways to improve the public's health centered on that year's theme. It is also a timely opportunity to educate the public, policy makers and practitioners about issues related to public health and advocate for the overall health and well-being of our residents and visitors alike.

Each day during National Public Health Week 2011 will focus on a daily theme as stated below:
