The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department kicked off National Public Health Week by planting a pinwheel garden to raise awareness of child abuse prevention.
National Public Health Week is April 6-12. The health department partnered with Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky to plant pinwheels in front of the LFCHD building to raise awareness about child abuse. The health department’s HANDS program helps teach first-time parents important health and safety tips for raising a new baby. By planting these symbols of childhood fun, we take time to remember those who have been harmed from childhood abuse and pledge to continue educating people on ways to prevent it.
