The City of El Paso Department of Public Health (DPH) is celebrating National Public Health Week April 1-7 with a weeklong celebration aimed at educating the community, recognizing the contributions of public health and highlighting important issues to improve public health across the country. This year’s theme, “Protecting, Connecting and Advancing: We Are All Public Health,” emphasizes the importance of individual contributions to community and planetary health.

As part of the celebration, DPH is hosting a variety of events throughout the week in El Paso. On Tuesday, they organized walks around the city to promote healthy neighborhoods. They held a dog walk at Joey Barraza Memorial Park and Vino and a Great Walk at Vista del Valle Park, with activities and raffles. The schedule for the rest of the week includes a Franklin Mountains trail cleanup on Wednesday, an educational topic for senior citizens at the Fabens Senior Center on Thursday, a sexual reproductive health presentation at the Pride Center on Friday and an emergency preparedness carnival at the Army Library on Saturday.
