Creighton University to celebrate National Public Health Week

National Public Health WeekJoin the American Public Health Association (APHA) and Creighton University in celebrating National Public Health Week from April 4-10.
The week focuses on public health’s role in society and public health issues the United States faces. This year’s theme is “Healthiest Nation 2030,” emphasizing APHA’s goal to make the U.S. the healthiest nation in the world by the year 2030.
“Quality public health is essential to our community. Through programs such as our Master of Public Health, we hope to bring to light issues that affect not only the health sciences, but society as a whole,” said Tanya Morgan, Ph.D., program director, Master of Public Health at Creighton University.
Public health professionals are leaders in charge of implementing programs that provide opportunities to teach, develop policies, and administer services, as described by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health. They work in research, clinical settings and education.
As part of an ongoing initiative to highlight public health, Creighton will host distinguished lecturer, Georges Benjamin. M.D., executive director of the American Public Health Association on Sept. 20.

Creighton University is a Jesuit, Catholic university bridging health, law, business and the arts and sciences for a more just world.
