Public Health Thank You Day
November 21, 2022
For 17 years, Research!America has organized the effort to say “thank you” to our public health workforce the Monday before Thanksgiving. The sheer number and complexity of public health challenges confronting our nation and the global community (the need to prepare for future pandemics; health worker burnout and resignation; dwindling trust in science and public health advice; and AMR among others) have only reinforced the tremendous value of the public health workforce.The ever-present resilience and dedication of these individuals cannot be overstated.
The public – including every one of us – plays an essential role as well. Our nation’s ability to live healthier, longer, and more productive lives rests on our collective commitment to supporting public health initiatives and the individuals who carry them out.
As we look to the future, we invite you to join us in expressing our gratitude for all of those who work tirelessly every day to protect the health of all people and communities.
