Today is Public Health Thank You Day!

Public Health professionals work tirelessly every day for disease prevention, the protection of our air, and clean drinking water.

A coalition of public health groups has set Nov. 24, 2008 as a day to show our appreciation for public health heroes.

The Center for Disease Control's Director Julie Louise Gerberding, MD, MPH said, "The 14,000 public health professionals at the CDC ... say ‘thank you' to each of these heroes on the front lines of health. As a result of their dedication, we are all able to live healthier, safer, and longer lives."

here for more information on the Public Health Thank You Day and how to get involved.

To everyone working for public health, from all of us at SmokeFree, thank you.
