National Public Health Week

Healthy Montgomery supports Montgomery County efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.   National Public Health Week 2020 activities will not include public events and meetings.  The Ulder J. Tillman Lecture, scheduled for Monday, April 6, 2020, has been postponed.

Similar to the American Public Health Association (APHA), we will be taking our events online.  APHA has great ideas of what you can do to celebrate NPHW and support social distancing.
