Covid-19 Information

Public Health is your Health.

Public health improves the conditions and behaviors that affect the health of each and every one of us. Public health battles against deadly contagious diseases and promotes healthier lifestyles. Public health seeks to reduce incidences of preventable diseases, minimize the consequences of catastrophic events, and provide the basics of sanitation, safe food, and water.

You Are Only as Healthy as the World You Live in.

Your health is determined not only by your own genetics and personal choices but also by the environment around you. Public health investigates the ecology of health – from social networks and economic circumstances to our environment – and then minimizes health risks.
