April is National Public Health Week

MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP RESOLUTION  2019:  RECOGNIZING NATIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH WEEK 2019

Whereas, the week of April 1-7, 2019, is National Public Health Week, and the theme is “Creating the Healthiest Nation: For science. For action. For health.”;  and

Whereas, since 1995, the American Public Health Association, through its sponsorship of National Public Health Week, has educated the public, policymakers and public health professionals about issues important to improving the public’s health; and


Whereas,
good health requires making healthy choices that improve our health, setting an example for our family and friends;  as well as supporting efforts to improve the factors that affect everyone’s health and limit the ability for many people to make healthy choices; and

Whereas, during National Public Health Week, we celebrate the power of prevention, advocate for healthy and fair policies, share strategies for successful partnerships and champion the role of a strong public health system, and

Whereas, It is only when we come together that we are strong enough to create the healthiest nation in one generation.

Now therefore, be it resolved this 21st Day of March, 2019, that the Township Committee of the Township of Montgomery joins with its Board of Health and its Health Department in celebrating National Public Health Week 2019, and its focus on building safe, healthy communities.
