The primary purpose of population-based health promotion and education is to prevent disease, illness, and injury. Preventing these issues before they arise can lead to reduced demands on the healthcare system; better health outcomes for individuals; and overall healthier, safer, and more engaged communities.
PHDM Health Promotion staff work on a wide range of topics and with a variety of community partners and coalitions to maximize effectiveness of programming in the communities we serve. Staff attend health fairs, provide community presentations, and communicate with the public and partners to provide education on health department programs and a variety of health topics including nutrition and physical activity.
