Community Health

The Division of Public Health works to improve the health of the community by addressing the policies, systems and environments that inform health. By addressing policies, systems and environments, Public Health staff works to prevent injury, illness and preventable health conditions.

DPH seeks to become the healthiest region by 2020. Public Health plays a critical role in creating a solid infrastructure for our community's healthcare system. A healthy community is more than merely an absence of disease; a healthy community includes those elements that enable people to maintain a high quality of life and productivity. A healthy community has adequate services to meet the needs of people and provides a safe, healthy environment for children to grow up and thrive. Public Health's role and responsibility is to preserve the safety and promote prevention of disease in our community.
