Public health planning and promotion
What is the Healthy Communities Program?
The Healthy Communities Program incorporates health education and health planning to address important individual and population health issues. The team is made up of a program manager, health planner, data analyst, four public health educators, and two clerical staff.
The program works to prevent injuries and disease by empowering individuals to make informed decisions about their health. The program guides state and national accreditation efforts, leads performance management and quality improvement projects, leads strategic planning and workforce development activities, and conducts community health assessments and community health improvement plans for the department.
The team works across all divisions within the department to provide health education, website edits, data /statistics, goal setting and reporting support. Health educators conduct presentations for schools, worksites, local community/professional groups, and Health Department staff on various health topics.
