National Public Health Week, health disparities Blog

According to the American Public Health Association, “Today, your zip code says too much about your health. Within the United States, there are unacceptable disparities in health by race and ethnic group, state-by-state and even county-by-county.” 

This week is National Public Health Week; its goal is to make the United States healthiest nation by 2030!

Fortunately, as UNH students, the majority of us have access to proper health care, food, a gym, and to a higher education.  Here, at UNH we have: three Dining Halls, pharmacy, and medical care at Health Services . Also, in walking distance we have access to a grocery store.

However, if you are in need of some assistance, the Cornucopia Food Pantry provides food and support to UNH students, staff, faculty, and their families.

Did you know that we have our very own Organic Garden? Organic fruits and veggies are open to the UNH Community and the public.

Furthermore, UNH’s Transportation Services and on campus facilities are also benefiting the general public.

All of these resources are a right step in making the United States the healthiest nation.

Be thankful that life in Durham, NH provides many resources to live a healthy lifestyle! Volunteer in other communities to help people in need!
