Join the Conversation: August National Health Observances


Each month, we highlight a selection of National Health Observances (NHOs) to raise awareness about important health issues that affect Americans every day.

We also provide links to a number of different resources that you can use to spread the word about these NHOs to your networks.

In August, we’re talking about immunizations, children’s eye health, and breastfeeding. Check out the resources for our featured NHOs and join us in advocating for health nationwide!

Use these resources to promote National Immunization Awareness Month, Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month, and National Breastfeeding Month — and help us work toward a healthier Nation.
