National Public Health Week: April 6-12, 2009

National Public Health Week

"Building the Foundation for a Healthy America" is the focus of the 2009 National Public Health Week. Organized by the American Public Health Association, the first week of April has, since 1995, been named National Public Health Week.

This year's theme calls attention to health reform proposed at the national level, and emphasizes that comprehensive health reform will not be possible without a strong public health infrastructure.

Locally, both the St. Louis City and County departments of health provide valuable information to optimize the health of their residents. The St. Charles County Department of Community Health & The Environment serves its residents with similar information.

In our university community, the Washington University Institute for Public Health connects faculty engaged in public health research. The Brown School of Social Work will admit students for a Master of Public Health degree in fall 2009.

Librarians at Olin Library, Becker Medical Library, and the George Warren Brown School of Social Work Library have collaboratively created the Public Health Research Guide to support effectively using resources from Becker and Danforth Campus libraries.

For questions about Becker Library's resources to support public health and related research, contact Will Olmstadt at 314-362-4734. For more information about how Becker Medical Library serves the St. Louis metropolitan area, read about Becker in the Community.
