HEALTH POLICY AND PROMOTION

When communities, businesses, and other organizations want to implement strategies to improve the health of people, CDH is often there to help. We educate our partners on the leading causes of illness and death and provide proven practices to improve health.


Policy Analysts and Health Education Specialists work with diverse community partners to establish local policies, systems, and environmental changes to combat tobacco use, increase physical activity, improve nutrition, and prevent cancer.


CDH helps prevent life-threatening falls in senior citizens with a free, peer-led, community exercise program called Fit and Fall Proof™.


CDH staff works with health care providers in the community to reduce the incidence of prescription drug overdose.
