Public health heroes are fighting to keep people healthy every day. On Monday, November 19, 2018, Research!America will partner with leading public health organizations to thank these hard-working professionals. Keeping our communities healthy takes a tremendous effort. It’s important to recognize all of the researchers, health inspectors, nutritionists, occupational health professionals, first responders, and so many more for all of their efforts.
Public health professionals protect us from diseases, ensure everyone has clean water and air, and help recover from natural disasters. They also teach people how to live healthier lives by providing information about topics such as nutritious eating practices and the dangers of smoking. This flu season, public health workers will be there to distribute over 160 million safe and effective vaccines to keep people healthy. Thanks to their efforts, public health conditions in America are improving every day.
Research!America welcomes everyone to join us in thanking these dedicated people. You can learn more about the astounding things being done in the field of public health and get tips on how to thank them on social media with the hashtag #PHTYD at www.publichealththankyouday.org.
