Oakland County Health Division is celebrating National Public Health Week (NPHW) April 4 -10, 2022. This annual event calls attention to public health programs and services, promotes prevention, and inspires healthy living. This week is also a time to thank Oakland County‘s dedicated public health staff, especially after the past two years of providing a robust response to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.
This year’s NPHW theme, ‘Public Health Is Where You Are,’ provides an opportunity to showcase how the public health staff works to help make communities healthier, stronger, and safer. A person’s health status can differ greatly by zip code due to things such as environmental quality, access to healthy food, education, and health care.

Oakland County Health Division offers over 40 programs and services to Oakland County residents and visitors.Continue reading
