Public Health Education and Wellness

Public Health education promotes choices that improve health and prevent disease, disability and premature death.  The purpose of health education is to positively influence the health behavior of individuals and communities as well as the living and working conditions that influence their health.

The Sullivan County Rural Health Network and Sullivan County Public Health works with schools, businesses and community groups to promote policy and environmental changes that will improve physical activity and nutrition throughout Sullivan County.

We have Public Health Educators, Community Health Nurses, and Public Health Nurses on staff who can provide presentations, conduct community outreach at events, or come speak to your community group about a wide variety of health related topics. Please call the Public Health Education Center at 845-292-5910, Ext. 2243 to let us know what your needs are for information and health education.
