Join the Oregon Public Health Association as we celebrate National Public Health Week, the first full week of April every year. OPHA joins the American Public Health Association in championing the health of all people and all communities.
Public Health Week Communication Toolkit
The Oregon Health Authority’s Public Health Division, the Oregon Public Health Association, and the Coalition of Local Health Officials created a communication toolkit to support outreach, events, and media communications during Public Health Week and beyond.
The toolkit contains tips for traditional media promotions and social media communications, talking points on the role of public health and public health modernization, and additional resources. The tips and tools can be used for messaging to both professional media and the general public.
