FARGO — Fargo will celebrate National Public Health Week next week.

The week recognizing the functions of public health will kick off Monday, April 3, with a Spring Open House from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Fargo Cass Public Health (FCPH) building, 1240 25th St. S., Fargo, according to a news release. This year’s theme is “Centering and Celebrating Cultures in Health.”

Each workday next week will focus on a public health topic. Next Monday's theme will be community, the release said.

The open house will feature activities, snacks and door prizes, the release said. It is open to the public.

“Our community became more familiar with public health through the pandemic due to the role FCPH played in the response,” Fargo Cass Public Health Director Desi Fleming said in a statement. “We look forward to this opportunity to highlight more of our services and resources as well as engage with our community at the open house.”


Other themes for next week include violence prevention, reproductive and sexual health, mental health, rural health, accessibility and food and nutrition, according to the release. More information can be found at .

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
