National Public Health Week: Help a Healthier America Begin Today
Nearly a million people in the United States die every year as a result of preventable health conditions. You can help prevent these deaths by educating yourself so you can live a healthier life.
National Public Health Week (April 2-8) is a great time to learn about common preventable health conditions so you and your family can stay healthy.
Take some time to learn:
- the facts about preventing HPV
- the differences among birth control methods
- what to do to have fewer asthma attacks
- how to recognize depression in yourselves and your friends.
Learn more about how to live a healthier life with resources from the Food and Drug Administration’s Office of Women’s Health.
