What is Public Health?

You might think we’re one of the healthiest nations, but we’re not. Compared to other developed nations, we’re lagging far behind. The thing is, it doesn’t have to be this way. We can make this the healthiest nation in one generation. Committing to a healthier America is something we all can do.

First, support public health – from the local clinic to the neighborhood park. A healthier American won’t be possible without the support of your communities. Second, adopt a healthier lifestyle. Encourage others to do the same. Help us teach a new generation that simple actions – like not smoking and eating healthy – lead to a happier, longer and more productive life. After all, healthy children will become healthy adults.
