National Public Health Week

The Texas A&M School of Public Health invites you to celebrate National Public Health Week (NPHW) April 1 - 7, 2019!

During NPHW, we bring together Texas A&M University and the Bryan-College Station community  to educate, advocate and create action around public health initiatives. 

As stated by the National campaign,

Since 1995 when the first full week of April was declared NPHW, communities across the United States have observed it as a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving the public’s health. The theme is “Creating the Healthiest Nation: For science. For action. For health.”  

Throughout the week, we will highlight the daily themes from NPHW.org, while also promoting events and programs important to our local community. National themes include healthy communities, violence prevention, rural health, technology, and climate change. Then we wrap up NPHW with recognizing and honoring military veteran students at Texas A&M with the Run for Heroes 5K. View our Schedule of Events link for more details. 

We would like to thank all our partners:

  • Brazos County Health Department
  • Texas A&M Corps of Cadets
  • Texas A&M Health Promotion Program
  • Texas A&M Department of Oceanography
  • Texas A&M Wellness Works
