The 2024 Health Awareness Calendar highlights national health observances and includes related content for blogs and social media

There are more than 300 health awareness months and days in 2024. Every one of these is covered in Baldwin Publishing’s 2024 Health Awareness Calendar.

The good news is that the most popular national awareness days and months won’t change in 2024. There is Heart Month in February 2024 and Breast Cancer Awareness in October 2024. Health providers and payers also can’t afford to miss life-saving health observances such as Colon Cancer Awareness in March 2024 and High Blood Pressure, Mental Health and Stroke Awareness in May 2024. And let’s not forget about healthcare observances such as Doctor’s Day, which will be celebrated on March 30, 2024.

The bad news is that all of these national awareness days will require more time-consuming and labor-intensive work from health marketing departments in 2024. Not only do health content managers need to be aware of more than 300 health observances, but they also need to develop content strategy plans for them.

The best healthcare content strategy involves posting relevant content to social media, newsletters and blogs for health awareness days and months. By pushing out timely content about national health observances, marketers are more likely to engage communities and drive actions since consumers are most open to receiving this information when it’s trending.
