During National Public Health Week, April 1-7, the Butte County Public Health Department will be talking about how supporting public health and prevention can create a healthier nation for all. Join us to find out how you can take preventive measures—in ways big and small--in your families, neighborhoods, workplaces and schools to live longer and healthier lives. A healthier America begins today!
