NEW AMERICAN PUBLIC HEALTH ASSOCIATION WEB SERIES MAKES COMMUNITIES TO APPRECIATE PUBLIC HEALTH




A new APHA web series is making it easier for friends, family and community leaders to appreciate public health.



Launched today by the American Public Health Association and Complexly, the “That’s Public Health” series features short, easy-to-understand videos on a range of public health topics.

The first episode, “What is Public Health?” can be viewed and shared online now on APHA’s YouTube channel. The four-minute video provides an overview of public health and how it benefits all Americans. You might recognize the host, APHA’s own Mighty Fine.



Other episodes in the 20-part web series will focus on health equity, climate change, gun violence, racism and more. Look for new episodes every Tuesday on APHA’s YouTube channel.



“We want viewers to come away from this series with a new understanding, to say to themselves ‘Oh, that’s public health,’” said Georges Benjamin, MD, APHA’s executive director. “It’s an educational tool, it’s entertaining and it’s something that can be easily shared.”



“That’s Public Health” videos can be embedded on websites, posted on social media and included in class materials.
