Healthy Communities Program

Healthy Communities Program aims to empower residents to adopt health behaviors and improve the conditions in which we live, learn, work and play.

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.

Macomb County Healthy Communities Program employs a diverse staff knowledgeable about a variety of health topics.

The team provides:

  • health education presentations and resources that are current, reliable, and relevant
  • services at no charge to schools, churches, civic groups, social clubs, businesses, and other non-profit organizations
  • services during regular business hours; evening and weekend availability are limited and based on availability of the speaker
