Chronic Disease Prevention

Chronic disease prevention is a public health priority identified in the Community Health Assessment and Public Health Improvement Plan. The Douglas County Health Department is committed to the prevention of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Chronic disease leads to a reduction in both quality of life and lifespan. However, many chronic diseases can be prevented through lifestyle modifications including maintaining a healthy diet, staying physically active, avoiding tobacco, limiting alcohol consumption, and effectively managing stress.

Transition of services is under way!

Disease Management and Prevention was one of the top issues our community identified as part of the Public Health Improvement Plan.

The Douglas County Health Department is currently transitioning Community Health services, including Chronic Disease Prevention services. All services will be transitioned to Douglas County by January 3, 2023. In the meantime, please continue using resources from Tri-County Health Department.
