Share your appreciation during National Public Health Week, April 5-11


Our School of Public Health partners provide valuable opportunities for your learning, helping support your educational and career goals. During National Public Health Week, April 5-11, take a moment to share your appreciation!

By posting on your social media profiles throughout the week using #ThankYouPublicHealth, you’ll help the American Public Health Association continue to thank public health professionals for all the hard work everyone's doing to keep our communities safe.

Need an idea? Post a photo of yourself at your field placement location, share a note about your experience, draw ‘Thank You’ on a piece of paper and take a photo and/or selfie with it, or make a short video to share your message of thanks.

In addition to the #ThankYouPublicHealth hashtag, tag the School of Public Health (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)  –  so we can share our appreciation, too – and, if possible, the organization or person for whom you’re thankful. If you’d prefer to submit your photo and/or message to the School of Public Health (SPH) Marketing and Communications Office to post on your behalf on the school’s social channels, you’re welcome to send your content to

There are many other activities throughout the week that are free and open to all students. Visit the NPHW schedule for a full list of virtual events. You can also participate in an Instagram scavenger hunt for a chance to win prizes!
