What is public health?
Public Health is a sophisticated science for identifying and dealing with real or potential health threats to the community. Public Health’s primary focus is to improve the health of communities, to prevent disease from occurring, and to save lives. HCHC does this through:
- Assessing and promoting health and safety through training and self-assessment
- Prevents or minimizes the occurrence of diseases and injuries through immunizations, community education, and nursing services
- Plans, prepares and responds to natural or man-made disasters
- Enforces public health laws and regulations
