This chronic disease program supports strategies to improve multiple chronic diseases and the risk factors associated with certain public health priorities.
The Shelby County Health Department conducts a community health assessment to determine strategic health priorities for Shelby County. The Department uses a process called M.A.P.P (Mobilizing Action for Planning and Partnership) to guide this process.
Health Promotion focuses not only on health education but disease prevention as well. We promote the empowerment of Shelby County residents by sharing information for improved healthy lifestyle choices.
The Tobacco Risk Reduction Program offers information and education on the prevention of tobacco use.
