Prince William Health District

What Does Public Health Look Like in the Prince William Health District?

Public Health is the science of protecting and improving the health of entire populations through promotion of healthy lifestyles, disease and injury prevention and detection and control of infectious diseases. Our population includes Prince William County, Manassas City and Manassas Park.

Unlike clinical professionals, who focus primarily on treating individuals after they become sick or injured, as public health professionals we try to prevent problems from happening or recurring by implementing educational programs, recommending policies, administering services and conducting research. We work with local, regional and national partners to limit health disparities and promote healthcare equity, quality and accessibility.  Click Here to Download Our Public Health in the Prince William Health District Flyer
