The University of Kentucky's College of Public Health is proud to celebrate National Public Health Week (NPHW) from April 3rd - April 9th, 2023, with a series of fun and informative events, service activities, and more that promote public health's passion, purpose, and pathway for a healthier life. All students, faculty, and staff on campus are invited.

The NPHW's theme is "Centering and Celebrating Cultures in Health" which include the following daily themes: 

  • Community
  • Violence Prevention
  • Reproductive and Sexual Health
  • Mental Health
  • Rural Health
  • Accessibility
  • Food and Nutrition

Our cultures have always shaped our health. We learn from the communities we're born in and that we build together. For this NPHW, we look to community leaders as our health leaders.

We celebrate the unique and joyful ways different cultures focus on health. And we look to how we can learn from each other, with humility and openness. 

We hope that you join us as it takes working together to make Kentucky, and beyond, the healthiest.

More information is forthcoming, so stay tuned!
