Each day millions of Americans take the first step to becoming a healthier person, and for the past 20 years, on a national level millions have observed National Public Health Week.
The main goal of National Public Health Week is for the United States to be the healthiest country we can be by 2030.
Today we mark Thanksgiving, a day typically associated with gratitude.

In the last month, Ruston Police Department and the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office have made mention of new officers who graduated from police academy.
