Healthy Communities

Our goal is to promote better health for our communities

Healthy Communities

Our public health focus includes pregnancy and early child development, healthy living and chronic disease prevention, control of communicable disease, mental health promotion and the prevention of harms from substances and injuries. We also bring together environmental health programs, such as food safety and water quality. Visit the Your Environment section of this site to learn more.
