Still Time to Be Observant

Although we’re almost at the halfway mark in 2007, it’s not too late to factor in National Health Observances. Health observances are days, weeks or months devoted to highlighting particular health concerns. Think ahead and take advantage of these occasions to offer a special program, contest or celebration. The following list will get you started:

June 11–17: National Men’s Health Week

July 10–14: National Youth Sports Week

September: Healthy Aging® Month; America

on the Move’s September Campaign

October 15–19: National Health Education Week

November: American Diabetes Month
