Health Promotion & Community Wellness

Our Philosophy
Public Health Education is about community wellness. We believe in creating healthy communities and supporting citizens to be as healthy as they can be. We work to prevent needless injuries, disabilities and premature deaths.

We envision a Solano County that respects and honors its diversity. A county that offers a high quality of life and is healthy, livable, walkable, bikeable and safe.

To achieve this, the Health Promotion and Community Wellness Bureau was formed in 1994 to assess, plan, implement and evaluate effective health education programs.  We work extensively with coalitions and help mobilize communities. While we provide many services to individuals and groups, we focus our efforts on advocacy and creating policies to maximize the positive impact on populations within our community. We support healthy people and healthy places.
