National Public Health Week Activities
The Arkansas Public Health Association partnered with the Arkansas Department of Health Office of Communications and Hometown Health Improvement on activities to promote National Public Health Week, held April 5-11, 2021. Several resources were developed, including 3 toolkits. As part of the toolkits, templates were included to make promoting NPHW easy and convenient. The logos and graphics can be easily added to email, Facebook, Twitter or other social media pages. The toolkit also contains a template letter to the county judge asking him to sign a proclamation for NPHW and a similar letter for the County Health Officer (CHO). The proclamation is included that can be copied and pasted. There are also several public service announcements, letters, and graphics for promoting and communicating with local TV, radio, newspaper and other print publications. Toolkits can be found here.
Pictures are included below of county judges signing the proclamation.
