National Child Health Day occurs annually on the first Monday in October. The day recognizes the care and guidance children need to grow strong and healthy. Whether it’s their environment, the food they eat or how much TV they watch, the day is an excellent opportunity to support the children in your life.
Summer Sun Safety Month reminds us that the skin is the body’s largest organ. It is important to take the correct precautions when going out into the sun because of the damage ultraviolet radiation exposure can do to your skin.
Protect your skin from the sun by:
- Staying in the shade as much as possible
- Wearing full brim hats
- Regularly applying broad-spectrum sunscreen that blocks UVA and UVB
By three methods we may learn wisdom:
First, by reflection, which is noblest;
Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
and third by experience which is the bitterest.

Every day little changes become a lifetime of BIG changes.
As we move towards the recovery of the COVID-19 pandemic, we highlight Community Health Improvement Week. We honor the health professionals who were at the forefront of the pandemic and those who work closely with our community.
This year’s theme is Reflect, Renew, and Rise Together. Reflect on the need to improve healthcare for the access of all people, renew the commitment to community health to serve our community, and rise together to strengthen our neighborhoods through collaboration.
May is Mental Health Month, a whole month dedicated to making mental health is something everyone should care about. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the mental health of people of all ages. Now, more than ever, it is critical to reducing the stigma around mental health struggles, because that stigma often prevents individuals from seeking help.
World Immunization Week aims to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease. Immunization saves millions of lives every year and is widely recognized as one of the world’s most successful health interventions. We remind everyone of its importance and what it has done to improve the health and well-being of everyone.
Every Kid Healthy Week is celebrated to spotlight all the efforts made to improve the health and wellness of children. It highlights the link between nutrition, physical activity and learning. Healthy kids are better prepared to learn and thrive!
This April we proudly recognize National Autism Month! Let’s celebrate the resilience of those with autism & applaud their unique talents! Let’s create better awareness, to inform and encourage communities to celebrate differences, & become more inclusive of individuals with autism. Autism, or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech & nonverbal communication. It is reported that approximately 1 in 54 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with an ASD. Early intervention affords the best opportunity to support healthy development including, improve learning, communication and social skills, as well as underlying cerebral development. Many children affected by autism also benefit from other interventions such as speech and occupational therapy.
World Health Day is celebrated to shed light on important matters including mental health, maternal and child care, the importance of healthcare workers, and many more such issues to the forefront. Each year World Health Day is celebrated on April 7th. This year, World Health Day’s campaign aims to build a fair and healthier world. COVID-19 has highlighted the differentiating access to healthcare and the need for quality health care.

We are taking time this month to recognize social workers and the great things they do.
Heart disease is the number one killer in Americans. About one in three women are diagnosed with heart disease.
