Prevent. Promote. Protect. Working together to support the health and well-being of our community.
The job of public health is building healthy communities. A healthy community requires more than medical care. It requires protection from dangers that can threaten the health of the entire population. It requires good information about the nature, magnitude and causes of health problems. It requires education about what individuals and the community can do to reduce health risks. A healthy community assures an environment in which its members can safely work and play.
