Chronic Disease Prevention

Woman holding dog

How do we create a culture of health in our communities? What does a community look like, when all the factors that influence a person’s overall health and well-being are met? From education to recreation, the social determinants that we strive to address in public health – those conditions in which people are born, live, work, and age – are opportunities to create a healthier, more equitable future for all.

Through policy, practice, and partnership models, NACCHO’s work in chronic disease engages local health departments in building their capacity to implement, evaluate, and sustain evidence- and practice-based chronic disease prevention activities in their communities. Public health is the work we do together as a society to ensure the conditions in which everyone can make healthy choices and lead fulfilling lives, and NACCHO supports health departments’ initiatives to promote community health and wellness for all.
