Do you #KnowPublicHealth?
IPHA has collected numerous stories to convey the work and value of public health in Iowa's communities.
Our greatest health challenges and solutions extend beyond the health care setting and frankly, beyond the walls of the public health department. The social, physical, and economic environments in which Iowans live, work, learn, play and pray significantly impact their health. Health issues in our communities can be complex and have visible economic and social consequences; they can be shared across communities but may require unique community-driven efforts.
Across Iowa public health embodies an American tradition of duty to serve our neighbors and IPHA is proud to share these Iowa public health stories as we invite you to #KnowPublicHealth.
