The Prevention and Public Health Fund will
invest $13.5 billion over the next ten years in
effective, proven prevention efforts, like childhood obesity prevention and
tobacco cessation. The fund is being used to support community and clinical
prevention efforts, strengthen state and local health departments and the
public health workforce, and support science and research.
It is important that your members of
Congress hears from advocates back home to understand how the fund is supporting
important prevention and public health activities in your state and community. Please send us a message to your members of Congress asking them to support the Prevention
and Public Health Fund!
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from American Public Health Association.
Support and protect the Prevention and Public Health Fund!
