Health Education and Health Promotion Services

The Vanderburgh County Health Department cares about the community’s health, and realizes the importance of prevention and early detection.  Poor lifestyle habits such as unbalanced diet, cigarette smoking, lack of proper exercise, and excessive stress, are all prominent risk factors for the leading causes of death in the United States.

Through education, prevention, and changes in lifestyles, however, individuals have the capability to enhance their well-being.  Our goal in health education, is to educate, enhance, and motivate individuals to strive for optimal health. hand washing
