Local Health Department Receiving Technical Assistance: Nassau County Health Department, FL


The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) is currently offering technical assistance support to local health departments to improve their capacity to develop or enhance health promotion programs for people living with disabilities through coordination of existing health department and community services.

Background:

Approximately 16.9% of residents in Nassau County have a disability. The Nassau County Health Department and its community partners are conducting a project to promote the health and well-being of people with disabilities funded by NACCHO. 

Project Activities:

Nassau County Health Department is receiving technical assistance from Allegan County Health Department and is planning to be trained in the Healthy Lifestyles curriculum and implement the Healthy Lifestyles program.

Project Update:

Nassau County has a meeting scheduled in early January with their local ARC (Association for Retarded Citizens) to discuss implementation of the Healthy Lifestyles curriculum at their facility. Allegan will provide technical assistance on implementing the curriculum.
