Vigo County Employee Health Fair is April 10

TERRE HAUTE — Monday kicked off the 19th National Public Health Week across the USA, during which issues important to improving the health of Indiana and the nation are emphasized.

The mission of the Vigo County Health Department is to promote, protect and provide for the well being of the citizens in Vigo County.

Local events during National Public Health Week include the sixth annual Vigo County Employee Health Fair scheduled 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today in the Government Annex, 147 Oak Street in Terre Haute.

The Vigo County Health Department will provide daily tips, local activities, and informational videos and education via social media on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube.

This year’s National Public Health Week theme is, “Public Health: Start Here.” Topics include prevention as a nationwide priority, eating well and being the healthiest nation in one generation.

“Public health is everywhere you look,” said State Health Commissioner Dr. William VanNess. “It’s the force behind the clean water we drink, the immunizations we get and the seatbelts in our vehicles. National Public Health Week provides a great opportunity to help Hoosiers better understand the public health system and its value.”
