A week of public health with APH

Monday, March 25, 2019 by Tai Moses

Not many people may know that the first week in April is National Public Health Week. While public health is generally something we think about only during a natural disaster or disease outbreak, Austin Public Health is constantly on the job promoting a healthy lifestyle and making sure that everyone in the community has equal access to health. APH’s many services include food safety programs, vaccinations, mother and baby health resources, nutrition education, HIV testing, health screenings for low-income residents, and much more. Learn all about what APH does for our community at a health fair on Thursday, March 28, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at City Hall, 301 W. Second St. And in the meantime, stay healthy!
