Everyone deserves to live a healthy life in a safe environment. That’s the idea behind National Public Health Week (April 1–7, 2019).
You’re invited to a special event Friday, April 5, at the University of Indianapolis to explore the importance of addressing health disparities in Indiana and discover how public-private partnerships can be used to address health equity.
The day will include a public health fair, a discussion with President and CEO of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Foundation Judith Monroe, MD, and a conversation with Indiana State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box.
