Public health associations across Canada have come together to host the inaugural Canadian Public Health Week from April 4-8 to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving our health and well-being. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted public health contributions in recent years; however, public health has always dedicated its efforts on protecting the health and well-being of communities across Canada, including our own in Windsor and Essex County.
Public health is vital to a healthy and fair society through the emphasis of prevention and societal efforts at a population level. The WECHU is proud to celebrate the first Canadian Public Health Week by highlighting some of the many programs and services we offer and our incredible team who make it all possible.
The health unit delivers a wide variety of health promotion and disease prevention programs and services that inform the public about healthy lifestyles, communicable disease control, immunization, food premises inspections, healthy growth and development, and health education for all ages. Thanks to the knowledge, care, and passion of each member of our team, the health unit is able to contribute to the health and well-being of our community.
The entire WECHU team have greatly appreciated the kind words and recognition received from our community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We would like to invite the community to celebrate Canadian Public Health Week 2022 along with us to recognize our local public health efforts and public health across the country.
