Health Education

About the Program

The goals of the Health Promotion program at the Halifax County Health Department are to build healthy communities.

We promote healthful living and reduce the risks of disease through policy and environmental changes in terms of physical activity, healthy food choices and portions, and tobacco use cessation.

Health Promotion programs help neighborhoods develop organizational and advocacy skills to facilitate changes that sustain healthy behaviors.

Community Partnerships

Health Promotion staff form partnerships with other health care providers, schools, work sites, faith organizations, leaders and many others to bring about changes in our community.
