On the Monday before Thanksgiving, November 20, Research!America and partners will recognize public health professionals who are on the front lines and behind the scenes protecting Americans from disease, injury, and other health threats.
During the weeks leading up to PHTYD, Research!America will highlight themes related to public health. The first theme week, October 23-27, will explore facets of public health and highlight initiatives that impact where we live, work, and play. October 30 - November 3 will focus on how public health professionals respond to current and emerging health challenges at the local, national, and global levels.
The third week, November 6-10, will shine a spotlight on innovations in public health that aim to address disparities in care and ensure that all Americans have access to quality, affordable and evidence-based care. The final week, November 13-17, asks us to imagine a life without disease, and feature new technologies that are rapidly driving medical innovation, from advances in disease therapies to progress in health IT.
