Public health staff is available to answer your health questions through your local health department. They also are available to speak to community organizations, schools, youth groups, and churches. Reference materials, informative pamphlets, and literature can also be obtained through your public health department.
Community Health, often also called Population Health, is an integral piece of public health that often occurs outside of a health department and focuses on improving the overall health of a community. The Lord Fairfax Health District is dedicated to addressing adverse health outcomes by education strategies, community outreach, and evidence-based health interventions. Health equity is a key focus when addressing adverse health outcomes, especially when working with rural populations, minority populations, or otherwise disenfranchised populations.
