National Public Health Week 2022

The past two years have shown us: Public health is critical. That’s why the Osteoarthritis Action Alliance is excited to be a part of this year’s National Public Health Week, celebrated next week from April 4-10. We know public health is more than a single topic – it’s countless issues and practices that helping every American to live as long and as well as they can.

So how can you get involved?

  • Celebrate and reinforce gratitude for public health,
  • Look for ways to strengthen our communities, locally and globally,
  • Name and dismantle racism in your community,
  • Hold accountable those responsible for climate change,
  • Urge your elected leaders to prioritize families by advancing policies for paid sick leave and a living wage,
  • Protect public health workers by ensuring public health authority,
  • Work to make sure health and wellness are not just available, but accessible to everyone in your community.
National Public Health WeekThere are countless ways to make your voice heard and become part of the movement for public health. Learn more about this year’s daily themes, and don’t forget to RSVP for the April 6 Twitter chat. It’s the largest public health conversation of the year, and a great place to hear from public health leaders and let your voice be heard. You can also check out the American Public Health Association’s toolkit for other ways you can keep the momentum going in your community.

I’ve always been interested in public health approaches because it seems to me we have this yearning for silver bullets, and that is not in fact how change comes about. Change comes through silver buckshot – a lot of little things that achieve results. That’s a classic public health approach.
