On Feb. 4, APHA will
join advocates from nearly 40 national organizations on Capitol Hill asking
members of Congress to support the Prevention and Public Health Fund. We would
like you to join us by sending a message
to your members of Congress urging their strong support for this critical
public health funding.
The fund is supporting community and clinical prevention efforts, strengthening
state and local health departments and the public health workforce and helping
to advance science and research. Together, we must ensure that the fund will be
able to invest, as intended, $13.5 billion over the next 10 years in effective,
proven prevention efforts, such as childhood obesity prevention and tobacco
Tell your members of Congress how the fund is supporting important prevention
and public health activities in your state and community, and ask them to join
you in becoming vocal advocates for the fund!
