National Public Health Week McAllen Events

You are cordially invited to celebrate National Public Health Week (NPHW) at the Texas A&M Higher Education Center at McAllen happening April 1-5, 2019. As stated by the National campaign, since 1995 when the first full week of April was declared NPHW, communities across the United States have observed it as a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving the public’s health.

 Throughout the week, we will highlight themes, events and programs important to our students and our local community. National themes include healthy communities, violence prevention, rural health, technology, and climate change. See below for more details
