What is Health?

 

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. (WHO) 

What is Health Education?

Health Education has been defined as "any combination of learning experiences designed to help individuals and communities improve their health, by increasing their knowledge or influencing their attitudes." (WHO)

The Health Department hosts a variety of health education programs for the community. Programs such as Alcohol Abuse Control, Drug Abuse Control, Smoking Prevention and Cessation, Nutrition, Injury Control, HIV/AIDS Education, Chronic Disease Management are oftentimes coordinated in collaboration with other agencies servicing the community.

Our goal is to help individuals of all ages increase life expectancy and improve their quality of life. We can also create a program to fit your needs.
