In celebration of Public Health Week, check out this video!
Public Health is Your Health. Most people don't understand what public health is or how it impacts their daily lives. The "This Is Public Health" campaign was designed by Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) to let people know that public health affects them on a daily basis and that we are only as healthy as the world we live in. Join this national effort to promote public health awareness in your community.
