\ˈnin-jə, -(ˌ)jä\ 

Someone who masters a skill and uses it to rock public health. 


Thousands of ninjas across the U.S. are getting creative & making their communities healthy: starting gardens, opening bike shops, modernizing health departments, designing apps, protesting institutional racism, fighting for smoke-free worksites, volunteering abroad, promoting healthcare enrollment. Their work to prevent disease and promote wellness is largely invisible, but it keeps us healthy out of hospitals. 


Together, NINJA efforts ARE increasING our lifespan.
