April is also National Organ Donation Month. A single complete donor can save the lives of 8 people and enhance the quality of life for dozens more. Nationally, there are more than123K people waiting for organ transplants; in CT, as of March 27, 2015, there were 1,128 people waiting for a kidney transplant, and another 20 who are waiting for a combined kidney and pancreas transplant. A transplant greatly enhances the quality of life (by removing people from dialysis) and reducing the cost of health care in the long term.
There was also a Historic eight-person kidney transplant at Yale this year. Read about that here: http://goo.gl/Lo86lj

Help Promote National Public Health Week in your community or organization
Right now, the U.S. spends MORE and gets LESS when it comes to health care and public health outcomes. This is the defining challenge of our generation – a challenge that we, the public health community, are uniquely positioned to help overcome.
That’s why, during National Public Health Week 2015, the public health community is rallying around a goal of making the U.S. the Healthiest Nation in One Generation — by 2030.
In April, we’ll create a new groundswell of support for the changes that must be made within our health system to realize this goal.
Get started here by accessing all the tools and tips you'll need for having a successful National Public Health Week 2015!
