Since 1995, when the first full week of April was declared National Public Health Week (NPHW), communities across the United States have observed NPHW as a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving our nation.
Each year, NPHW focuses its effort on a different theme, and this year's theme is "Public Health is ROI: Save Lives, Save Money." The 2013 NPHW theme was developed to highlight the value of prevention and the importance of well-supported public health systems in preventing disease, saving lives and curbing health care spending. This year, we hope you'll join us in championing the work of public health and its significant return on investment (ROI).
The University of Alabama Birmingham School of Public Health encourages everyone to come out and support, participate, and learn about public health!
for a list of events around UAB.
The American Public Health Association (APHA) serves as the organizer of NPHW and develops a national campaign to educate the public, policymakers and practitioners about issues related to each year's theme. APHA creates new NPHW materials each year that can be used during and after NPHW to raise awareness about public health and prevention.

KoronisFest pays homage to Koronis, who began life as a princess in ancient Greece. Legend says she and Apollo, the sun god, were lovers. Like most relationships, theirs had its ups and downs. But in time Koronis gave birth to Asklepios, god of medicine.
Asklepios fathered Hygeia, the goddess of good health. She gave us the word “hygiene.” We take Koronis, then, to be the grandmother of public health. And so we adopt her as our patron.
The caption at the bottom of the ad reads:
"She went to our website and made a donation. Which paid for the oil that goes in the trucks that deliver
the food to the soup kitchens in Manhattan. It's easy to do what Gail Did -- just visit
cityharvest.org or call 1-800 77 HARVEST."
Would UAB students (and faculty) want to take part in a contest to create similar type ads for local causes to see which association of
donor and donation was the most bizarre/original/striking? The ads would be showcased on the exchange and also on the nonprofit websites.
