Community Education and Outreach

Our staff of Public Health Educators are available to speak at schools, churches, and civic groups on various health topics and about Health Department services.

The Health Department will strive to honor as many requests as possible. However, previously scheduled events or availability of staff may prevent the Health Department from fulfilling all requests. In the event a request is unable to be fulfilled or if the event/program is unable to meet the guidelines outlined above, the Health Department will suggest an alternative means of education and outreach.
