Public Health Education

Although a separate division within the Health Department, public health education integrates numerous components of all divisions. The main goal of health education is to promote public health by positively influencing public and individual attitudes and behaviors. This occurs through the provision of information and training on a large range of health topics. The Public Health Educator performs many different functions within the Health Department to help accomplish this goal.
