Mark your calendars for County Health Day on Thursday, April 18, and share your county’s progress toward improving health for all!

County Health Day celebrates counties working to build a culture of health. Throughout the day, NACo will highlight innovative county health programming and share best practices from communities across the US.

How to Participate

Show #CountyHealth in Action!

Throughout the day, share relevant links, photos, program descriptions, stories and lessons learned to inspire and connect with other county leaders on Twitter and Facebook using our County Health Day hashtag (#CountyHealth).

Join our #CountyHealth Twitter Chat!

@NACoTweets will hold a Twitter chat on April 18 to engage counties around strategies for building healthy communities. This dynamic discussion will emphasize the county role in health and human services and encourage cross-county discussion of the challenges, benefits and best practices associated with building a culture of health at the local level.

Participation is easy! @NACoTweets will guide the discussion around a series of questions labeled Q1, Q2, Q3, etc. Respond to the questions using the hashtag (#CountyHealth) and the corresponding A1, A2, A3, etc. for each answer.
