What is Public Health?
Public Health is the science of protecting and improving the health of communities through education, promotion of healthy lifestyles, and research for disease and injury prevention. Public Health addresses the health of the community as a whole rather than the health of an individual. Public Health leaders work continuously to prevent disease and to improve the health of our residents and visitors!
