El Paso starts National Public Health Week with a BARK!

In the spirit of community and environmental health, El Paso’s Department of Public Health (DPH) is hosting a weeklong celebration for National Public Health Week, which runs from April 1-7. The theme of this year’s event, “Protecting, Connecting and Thriving: We Are All Public Health,” emphasizes the importance of individual contributions to the wellbeing of our community and planet.

The DPH has organized a series of events throughout the week that aim to educate and engage members of the public in promoting healthy lifestyles. On Tuesday, they held walks across the city to promote healthy neighborhoods, with activities including a Doggie Walk at Joey Barraza and Vino Memorial Park and a Glow Walk at Vista del Valle Park. The rest of the week’s schedule includes a Franklin Mountains Trail Cleanup on Wednesday, educational topics for senior citizens at the Fabens Senior Center on Thursday, a Sexual Reproductive Health presentation at the Pride Center on Friday, and an Emergency Preparedness Carnival at Armijo Library on Saturday.

These events seek to promote biodiversity, climate change resilience, innovative tools in public health, and emergency preparedness. Members of the community are encouraged to visit the DPH website at EPHealth.com to find out more about these events and how they can get involved.
