Tallahassee, Fla.The Florida Department of Health in Brevard (DOH-Brevard) is celebrating National Public Health Week (NPHW) from April 2-8. This year’s theme is “Changing Our Future Together,” which highlights the importance of engaging communities and partners in all sectors as public health workers strive to put health within everyone’s reach. This week is also a time to celebrate the contributions of the people who are dedicated to public health.

“DOH-Brevard is actively involved in promoting and maintaining the health of all residents and visitors of Brevard County,” stated Maria Stahl, DOH-Brevard Administrator. 

Each day of NPHW focuses on a different public health topic that is critical to ensuring healthy communities.
