Join us in celebrating “Healthy Tulare County Week,” April 2–6, 2018, and become part of a growing movement to create the healthiest nation in one generation. We're celebrating the power of prevention, advocating for healthy policies, sharing strategies for successful partnerships, and championing the role of a strong public health system.
During this week, which coincides with National Public Health Week, we hope you’ll join us in engaging all communities and all sectors in a conversation about the role each of us can play to put good health within everyone’s reach. Where we live, learn, work, and play impacts our health and our opportunity to ward off disease and injury. With that in mind, let’s partner across public and private spheres to create healthier people, families, communities, and eventually, the healthiest nation. We can do it—if we work together. That's why the theme for the week is "Changing Our Future Together."
Each day of Healthy Tulare County Week will focus on a different public health topic that’s critical to creating the healthiest nation. We hope you’ll use each topic to spark new conversations and engage new stakeholders in your community. And, of course, every day will be a day to celebrate, recognize, and honor the contributions of America’s public health workers.

During Healthy Tulare County Week, be sure to stay tuned to our Agency Facebook and watch for videos from the Lifetime of Wellness Program, Nutrition Education and Obesity Prevention (NEOP), and Tobacco Control Program featuring local residents talking about making a healthy difference in our communities.
Finally, the Public Health Branch is sponsoring a Health & Resource Fair on Thursday, April 5, from 3–6 p.m. at the Hodges Community Center in London, California. Over two dozen vendors will be there sharing information with the public and raffling off prizes. We hope you can join us!
