Theme: Public Health: Everyone, Every Day, Everywhere

Public Health:

  • Everyone – Decisions made in every sector shape the opportunities people have to live longer, healthier lives. Improving health for those who have the worst health outcomes generates better health for all. Everyone does better together. 
  • Every Day – Public Health does important work to protect, maintain, and improve the health of all people in Minnesota. Public health departments, however, cannot create health by acting alone; working with and alongside the community makes it happen!
  • Everywhere – Public Health is all around us. Our world is interconnected and so is our health. We can work together to build environments that create health. Health is a resource that multiplies the more it is shared.
