Help students to make good decisions about their well-being during National Public Health Week, April 1-7. Organized by the American Public Health Association, this campaign is designed to raise awareness and educate the public, government, and practitioners about public health issues. This year’s theme, "Public Health is ROI: Save Lives, Save Money" focuses on the value of prevention and measures people can take to help improve their health.
Talk to your class about the importance of health and wellness with these collections of related resources: Health Literacy and Exercise and Nutrition. These materials can also be used to celebrate World Health Day, which falls during the same week, on April 7th. The focus this year is on high blood pressure. Teach your students about the risks associated with hypertension and how to prevent it using the easy-to-read High Blood Pressure: The Science Inside.
