AJPH APRIL 2020: “THE GRASSROOTS ORIGINS OF NATIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH WEEK”(ENGLISH)
This year is the 25th anniversary of the launching of National Public Health Week (#NPHW)in 1995. Before NPHW there has been a 35 year-long National Negro Health Week (#NNHW), from 1915 to 1950. What was #NNHW? What did it achieve? Is there any link between #NNHW and #NPHW? I explore these questions with 3 guests: Pr Vanessa Gamble, from George Washington University, Prof Paul Braff, from Temple University and Dr Georges Benjamin, Executive Director of the APHA.
