National Public Health Week in April is a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving our nation’s health. Public health work is not a game, but it often involves solving puzzles. So, we created a word search puzzle of public health terms for you to solve!
You can work on the puzzle online or download a PDF to print out (as well as a PDF answer key to the printed version). For the online game, you drag your cursor over the letters of the word (this 5-second video shows you how).
The online version allows you to adjust the puzzle’s look and settings, including difficulty — such as if words may be in reverse (note: in the printed version, some words are in reverse!). Plus, tapping on a word reveals a ‘hint’ where the word’s first letter in the puzzle grid is highlighted.
