National Public Health Week

National Public Health Week Events

Since 1995, when the first full week of April was declared National Public Health Week (NPHW), communities across the United States have observed the time as an opportunity to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving the public’s health. It’s a time to unite around critical issues and focus our collective energy on the singular goal of helping people live longer, happier, healthier lives. Find out more at

Each year, Pitt Public Health observes National Public Health Week through numerous student-led events and through the annual  Dean's Day student research competition.
