Let’s make America the healthiest nation in one generation. We could you know?
Right now, the U.S. spends more on health care than other comparable countries. What do we have to show for that spending? Numerous studies show that we live shorter lives and struggle with more health issues such as obesity, infant mortality, diabetes,heart disease and more. And this is true for Americans of all ages and socio-economic groups.
This is the defining challenge of our generation – that we, the public health community, are uniquely positioned to overcome. That’s why, during National Public Health Week 2015, the public health community is rallying around a goal of making the U.S. the Healthiest Nation in One Generation—by 2030.
In the 20 years we’ve been celebrating National Public Health Week we have seen the tremendous success we can achieve working together across all fields of public health. Moving forward, we need to collaborate with an even broader range of partners to address all of the issues that have a profound effect on our health. Let’s build a groundswell of support for the prevention and public health programs we know improve the health of our communities.
