Health Promotion & Outreach Overview

The Health Promotion and Outreach Division works to strengthen the public’s health and safety to improve quality of life. Our team of health educators is committed to enriching the lives of all people, so individuals have the knowledge and support they need to assume responsibility for their own health.

This work is done through three key essential public health services:
