Health Education - Wellness Programs

Health Education

Health Education seeks to promote healthy lifestyles in the residents of our county.  

Through programs that focus on chronic disease and injury prevention, we educate and inform the public on a variety of health topics. 

Health educators teach classes and seminars, attend health events and design and distribute materials to improve health outcomes in the community. We also form community partnerships and seek to create policy and environmental changes throughout the county that will benefit the health of our residents

We offer several ongoing health programs in the community that target individuals and groups of all ages
