The Nation's Health

In this month's edition of the APHA's publication, The Nation's Health, NDSU MPH was highlighted for the work done during National Public Health week.
 Here's what is says:
"Fargo Cass Public Health in Fargo, N.D., worked during National Public Health Week to show how the department makes a difference throughout the community. On April 3 at the West Acres Mall, the agency conducted free blood pressure checks, gave away refrigerator thermometers and distributed information on emergency preparedness, pool safety and health promotion. Staff and nurses also oversaw volunteers who made sandbags for flood preparation. Meanwhile, local media attended nurse family partnership appointments to learn how the program helps families who are expecting their first children. Health promotions staff and nutrition students from North Dakota State University gave nutrition presentations to local fourth- and fifth-graders, who had the opportunity to have their pictures taken while sporting milk mustaches.
During National Public Health Week at North Dakota State University in Fargo, N.D., faculty in the master of public health program provided insight about their current research and gave ideas for future research collaborations. Also, North Dakota State Health Officer Terry Dwelle, MD, MPH, an APHA member, spoke about integrating public health and primary care and how those with an MPH degree can help lead the way. The week’s events also featured a panel discussion on school wellness policies and local foods."
