City of Milwaukee: Health Department marks National Public Health Week 2019

Public invited to participate in daily events and learn about services and programs

MILWAUKEE – During the week of April 1-7, the City of Milwaukee Health Department (MHD) will celebrate National Public Health Week (NPHW).  Since 1995, the first full week in April has been declared a time to recognize the impact of public health efforts. 

For more than 150 years, MHD has been a leader in ensuring that all Milwaukee residents have access to resources and information that will help improve their health.  This week is dedicated to addressing the causes of poor health and disease risk among individuals and communities. 

The theme of NPHW, “Creating the Healthiest Nation: For science.  For action.  For health.”, has health departments across the country raising awareness for the role they play in helping communities understand how we can work together to build healthier communities and eventually, the healthiest nation. 

Residents are highly encouraged to participate in MHD’s daily events and learn about services and programs the department provides.  Please refer to the attached flyer.
