From immunizations to restaurant inspections, from early childhood health to emergency preparedness, the programs at Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) affect our communities each day.
That’s why we celebrated National Public Health Week from April 3-9, 2017. It’s a chance to tell you about all the ways we can serve you and your family, and an opportunity to make a difference.
The theme for 2017 National Public Health Week is “Healthiest Nation 2030,” and is based around The American Public Health Association’s (APHA) goal to cultivate the healthiest nation in the world in just one generation. Jefferson County Public Health is joining the APHA in this goal by advocating for healthy and equitable policies, the power of prevention, successful community partnerships and the importance of a strong public health system.
