National Public Health Week is April 3-9, 2017

Governor Bill Walker has been asked to sign a proclamation in support of this national recognition of public health in Alaska and throughout the nation.  Additionally, a request has been sent to Mayor Ethan Berkowitz to sign a proclamation for the Municipality of Anchorage.  

We would like to extend this opportunity for the mayors in regional hubs throughout Alaska to consider signing a proclamation for National Public Health Week to support the public health efforts in their towns for healthy communities and healthy Alaskans!

We are providing a template of the proclamation text.

Please join us in acknowledging public health in Alaska!
