April 2-8 is recognized as National Public Health Week. Organized by the American Public Health Association, this campaign is designed to raise awareness and educate the public, government, and practitioners about public health issues. This year’s theme of “A Healthier America Begins Today: Join the Movement” encourages people and their communities to take preventive measures to help improve their health. Even starting with “little steps can lead to big changes.” Talk to your class about the importance of health and wellness with these collections of related resources: Health Literacy and Exercise and Nutrition from Science NetLinks and AAAS. These resources also can be used to celebrate World Health Day, which falls during the same week, on April 7th. The focus this year is on how “Good health adds life to years.” Students can learn about the science behind diabetes, find tips on healthy eating, and discover how alcohol impacts the brain.
