National Health Information Center

ODPHP sponsors the National Health Information Center (NHIC), which supports public health education and

promotion by raising awareness about National Health Observances year-round. NHIC also helps connect health

professionals and consumers to the organizations that can best answer their questions by providing up-to-date

contact information for the most reliable resources.

National Health Observances

National Health Observances (NHOs) are special days, weeks, or months dedicated to promoting important health

topics. By supporting NHOs, you can:

  • Educate the public about health risks
  • Organize successful health promotion events and campaigns
  • Get new ideas, information, and resources on health topics you’re interested in

Each month, ODPHP features select NHOs that align with our priorities for improving health across the Nation. Check

out our NHO roundups.
