National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is an annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases and celebrate the achievements of immunization programs and their partners in promoting healthy communities. Since 1994, hundreds of communities across the United States have joined together to celebrate the critical role vaccination plays in protecting our children, communities, and public health. NIIW 2017 is April 22-29, 2017. Click here to learn more.
APRIL IS CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH!
Throughout National Child Abuse Prevention Month, we ask the community to recognize the importance of working together with families to prevent child abuse and neglect, and to promote the social and emotional well-being of children and families.
During the month of April and throughout the year, communities are encouraged to share child abuse and neglect prevention awareness strategies and activities and promote prevention across the state and the communities we serve.
We all play an important role in the lives of children, and together, we can truly create better futures for today’s children so that they can grow and thrive into healthy and happy adults! Click Here for more information!
