National Public Health Week


Join us for National Public Health Week 2020 starts Monday, April 6, 2020 - designed to engage faculty, staff, and students on key public health issues in Baltimore, Maryland, and around the world. 


Everyone deserves to live a long and healthy life in a safe environment. Where we live, learn, work, worship and play affects each of us and can determine our health and life expectancy. In the workplace, let’s partner across public and private sectors to make sure decisions are made with the public’s health in mind. Within our communities, let’s start new conversations with our neighbors and become advocates for positive change. Working together, we can build healthier communities and eventually, the healthiest nation. But we need your help to get there.

The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is committed to promoting a healthy campus and providing resources that promote the health and wellbeing of our students, faculty and staff. In collaboration with Campus Life Service’s Integrated Health Committee, National Public Health Week (NPHW) is designed to engage UMB community on key public health issues in Baltimore, Maryland, and around the world. During each day of NPHW, we focus on a particular public health topic. Then, we identify ways each of us can make a difference on that topic. These areas are critical to our future success in creating the healthiest nation, and everyone can do their part to help.
