Fairfax County Celebrates National Public Health Week April 7-13

During the week of April 7-13, the Fairfax County Health Department will celebrate National Public Health Week. “Healthy People in Healthy Communities” is the theme of this year’s National Public Health Week, which provides an opportunity to thank the dedicated, hard-working employees of the Health Department who are committed to providing quality health services and protecting the environment for everyone who lives, works or visits in Fairfax County.

National Public Health Week provides the opportunity for the public and public health professionals to learn about Fairfax County’s public health success stories, such as:

 

  • preparing a comprehensive Health Department plan of response to the threat of bioterrorism

 

  • preventing outbreaks of food-borne illness
  • providing low-cost preventive medical care
  • maintaining good nutritional standards
  • providing high quality prenatal care
  • protecting our water resources
  • educating our citizens on proper septic tank maintenance
  • immunizing populations against infectious disease

The Fairfax County Health Department recommends that citizens take time during the week to check on their family’s health by making sure that required immunizations, necessary tests and physicals are current. A list of Health Department services is available on the county Web site at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/service/hd/hdweb.htm or by calling 703-246-2411, TTY 703-591-6435 for more information.
