Join us in celebrating National Public Health Week 2017 and become part of a growing movement to create the healthiest nation in one generation. We're celebrating the power of prevention, advocating for healthy and fair policies, sharing strategies for successful partnerships and championing the role of a strong public health system.

Americans are living 20 years longer than their grandparents' generation, largely thanks to the work of public health. Yet people in many other high-income countries live longer and suffer fewer health issues than we do. This is the defining challenge of our generation — a challenge that we, the public health community, are uniquely positioned to help overcome.

To ensure everyone has a chance at a long and healthy life, we must tackle the underlying causes of poor health and disease risk. Those causes are rooted in how and where we live, learn, work and play. That's why, during National Public Health Week 2017, Generation Public Health is rallying around a goal of making the U.S. the Healthiest Nation in One Generation — by 2030.
