Health Promotion and Education Services

Health Promotion and Education Services provide prevention strategies in worksites, schools, and community settings. Our professional Community Health Educators encourage and promote healthy lifestyles by providing education, training, consultation, and support for healthy behaviors. Health Educators also coordinate programs and provide technical assistance in implementing community health standards and policies.

 

We are dedicated to prevention and the belief in educating and encouraging residents to learn more about their own health to maintain healthy and productive lifestyles. Examples include serving on local committees and coalitions that address smoke-free environments, promoting the development of walkways and trails, and advocating for healthier food options in schools and the community.
