In 2013, United Health Foundation ranked Nevada 37th in the nation for overall public health. Nevada continues to be challenged by poor public health per-person spending, low high school graduation rates and increased violent crime. However, Nevada has witnessed a low prevalence in binge drinking, moderate prevalence of diabetes and a low incidence of infectious diseases.
The NPHF board recently completed a planning retreat paving the way to target key health indicators for Nevada communities and the people who make Nevada their home. Our 4Word Thinking campaign will help address these critical indicators.
Nevada Public Health Foundation (NPHF) is a 501(c)(3) education organization serving as an essential public health partner in identifying opportunities, mobilizing resources, and delivering programs to build a healthy future for Nevada.
Our vision is for a healthy future for all Nevada communities and the people who live in them.
