Health Promotion / Disease Prevention
The Health Promotion / Disease Prevention Division works with community partners to improve health and prevent disease where Washtenaw County residents live, work, learn and play. This means addressing the things that make residents sick, such as lack of access to healthy foods and lack of safe places to be physically active. Our staff and community partners work together to set policy, implement programs, and change community environments so that healthy living is easier for individuals to achieve.

making them sick?"
