Celebrating National Public Health Week 2023

For this year’s National Public Health Week, Centering and Celebrating Cultures in Health, we’re highlighting the Arnold School’s Center for Community Health Alignment, home to the Community Health Worker Institute, PASOs, and Equity through Meaningful Engagement. From culturally relevant exercise and nutrition programs to assessing the built environment to connecting underserved residents with much-needed resources, we’re partnering with communities across the state to improve health for all.
