National Public Health Week: Protecting, Connecting and Thriving Together in El Paso

El Paso starts National Public Health Week with a BARK!

National Public Health Week is being celebrated in El Paso from April 1-7 by the City of El Paso’s Department of Public Health (DPH). The weeklong celebration aims to educate the community, recognize the contributions of public health, and highlight important issues for improving our nation’s health. This year’s theme, “Protecting, Connecting and Thriving: We Are All Public Health,” emphasizes the importance of each individual playing a role in the community’s and the planet’s health.

The DPH has planned several events during the week to engage the community in discussions and activities related to public health issues. On Monday, there will be a Doggie Walk at Joey Barraza and Vino Memorial Park followed by a Glow Walk at Vista del Valle Park on Tuesday. On Wednesday, there will be a Franklin Mountains Trail Clean Up to promote biodiversity and ecosystem balance. On Thursday, educational topics for senior citizens will be discussed at the Fabens Senior Center. A Sexual Reproductive Health presentation will be held at the Pride Center on Friday, and an Emergency Preparedness Carnival will take place at Armijo Library on Saturday.

These events aim to educate people about various aspects of public health and encourage them to contribute to improving overall health.
