Health Education/Outreach Request

In our Health Promotion programs, trained health educators collaborate with partners throughout the community, such as work sites, schools, faith based community groups, and families to promote healthy lifestyles.

Health Promotion staff can provide workshops and presentations on a variety of topics promoting community health and well-being. We will be pleased to provide requested services for your organization or event, dependent on the availability of staff.

The goal is to empower young cyclists with a minimal set of skills for on-road riding and teach them rules of the road.  A large parking lot area is needed to design a course that can be blocked off from all other traffic, along with volunteers to help man the course as kids ride and assist with helmet fittings and bike checks. Participants are required to wear helmets.
  • Hot Car Temperature Display – The “Hot Car” temperature display is a tool for demonstrating how quickly the temperature inside a vehicle can rise. The display requires electricity and a demo vehicle. An additional volunteer to assist with set up is highly recommended. Cannot be set up during inclement weather.
  • Medication Display Board – A look-a-like display board showing a variety of potentially poisonous items that look like non-poisonous items. The board is used as a tool to educate parents and children on potential poisonings that can occur in the home.

Requests must be submitted at least one month in advance of requested date to receive full consideration.
