Public Health Works! New York
Public Health Works!
|Surveys have found that while citizens know public health is important to them, they aren't always exactly sure what it is or how it has touched their lives.
The Public Health Works! Campaign raises awareness of the essential services that public health workers and the public health system provide to the residents of New York State.
At the heart of all successful public health initiatives are the workers who promote and protect the public's health and safety. In addition to addressing everyday public health needs, the public health workers face a number of emerging and complex health issues such as the increase in obesity, managing vaccine supplies, disparities in health outcomes, and emergency preparedness. Compounding these issues, workers also face workforce challenges, including large numbers of employees who are retiring, shortages of key professionals, and the need for ongoing training and education to ensure that professionals can effectively address all of the emerging public health issues.
