Health Education

Florida Department of Health in Marion County

Our Health Education team works to improve the health and well-being of all Marion County residents through fun and educational community outreach activities.  Whether encouraging kids to make healthier food choices at a health fair, teaching a diabetes prevention class at a local community center, educating teens on how to cope with the tough decisions facing them, or working with our community partners to prevent childhood injuries, you will see our Health Educators throughout Marion County. We strive to teach our community members how to make the healthy choice the easy choice and the best choice for them. After all—it’s all about choices!
