Champaign-Urbana Public Health District Asks for Your Help During National Public Health Week

Friday - Mar 30, 2007

Champaign, IL - April 2-8 is National Public Health Week. This year's theme is "Preparedness and Public Health Threats: Addressing the Unique Needs of the Nation's Vulnerable Populations." CUPHD asks citizens of Champaign and Urbana to help our community prepare by "Stocking 2 for Flu" and developing family emergency plans.

National Public Health Week is an annual observance meant to draw attention to the often invisible public health programs and practitioners providing care and services on the national, state and local levels. Public Health works behind the scenes to prevent epidemics and the spread of disease; protect against environmental hazards; prevent injuries; promote healthy behaviors; respond to disasters and community recovery efforts; and ensure the quality and accessibility of health services.
