Health Promotion

What is Health Promotion?

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 information provided in this section includes cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, healthy eating, and physical activity.


The Health Department also convenes an obesity prevention coalition called Let's CHANGE (PDF). Let's Commit to Healthy Activity and Nutrition Goals Every day was created in 2010. Membership includes a variety of organization and individuals who are dedicated to improving healthy eating and active living in Shelby County.
