"Striving for a Healthier Community"

Health Promotion

Heart Disease, Diabetes, Stroke, Cancer, and Injuries are among the top causes of death and disability in Duplin County. Many of these diseases can be avoided by making appropriate lifestyle changes. Public Health focuses on preventive health services including health promotion, disease prevention, and health education. Health promotion encompasses physical activity, nutrition, and tobacco use with educational and community-based programs. Comprehensive prevention encompasses personal, clinical preventive services, community-based interventions, and social policies consistent with preventive services. Prevention activities and services must be the foundation of health reform.

Does your company offer wellness programs for its employees? Are you self-insured? Would you like to encourage healthier habits in your community? Would you like to start a church wellness program?

Staff is available to speak on health related topics to community groups, individuals, churches, businesses and civic groups. The Health Department participates in community events and health fairs. We can offer suggestions and make referrals to the resources you need to get started on a community-based wellness initiative.
