Physical Activity/Health Education & Promotion

Child Health

Child Care Health
The purpose is to promote health and safety and prevent illness and injury in child care settings through education. Offers health promotion and disease prevention services to licensed child care providers.

Children with Special Health Care Needs
Children, ages birth-18, who have or are suspected to have chronic conditions, delays or disabilities can receive care coordination by public health nurses through home visits or phone consultation.

Access to Baby and Child Dentistry (ABCD)
The ABCD program matches Medicaid-eligible children, ages 0-5, to a participating dentist where they receive oral health services until age 6.

Nurse Family Partnership
As a first-time mom, you most likely have a ton of questions. That's why Nurse-Family Partnership starts working with you before you give birth to your child. By meeting with you as early in your pregnancy as possible, our nurse home visitors address your questions and concerns, prepare you for childbirth, and help ensure that you deliver a healthy baby.
From helping you have a healthy pregnancy, to coaching you on child development, to empowering you to pursue your heart's desire; your nurse home visitor will always be there for you so you can be there for your baby.



Tuberculosis (TB)
TB is a disease that is spread from person to person through the air. TB usually affects the lungs. The germs are put into the air when a person with TB coughs, sneezes, laughs, or sings. TB can also affect other parts of the body, such as kidneys, the brain, or the spine.

Refugee Health Screening
This is an important service as it can help identify the health needs of each refugee and start them in medical care here in our county. We offer medical screening that includes immunizations and TB testing.
