In past years, Multnomah County has celebrated our community’s public health heroes to recognize leaders and organizations in our community who support and promote public health. This celebration was held to during National Public Health Week, which is the first week of April.
What is Public Health?
Public health is the art and science of protecting and improving the health of communities through education, promotion of healthy lifestyles and research for disease and injury prevention. Public health works to prevent health problems before they occur, maintaining a focus on an entire community rather than on an individual.
