 April 5-11 was public health week.  This year the American Public Health Association’s (APHA) theme was “A Healthier America: One Community at a Time.”  This is a continuation of the launch last year of “Healthiest Nation in One Generation.”

 Public health.  That is what the transformation of health systems is really all about.  I highly recommend you take a look at APHA’s campaign for building healthier communities, http://generationpublichealth.org/

 Seems like it aligns nicely with the work emerging from the YCC Health Team,
