Prevention Services works to prevent disease and injury in our community, promote healthier choices and behaviors, prepare and respond to public health emergencies, investigate disease outbreaks, and provide quality health information. We work toward these goals through the activities of our programs:
The City-County Health Department (CCHD) raises awareness with public information campaigns throughout the year. Our Cover Your Cough campaign reminds everyone to wash their hands and cover their coughs to prevent the spread of many diseases. Our Healthy People, Healthy Community campaign works to educate on the role of each person in the overall health of our community.
