Denton County Health Department Health Educators work to favorably influence overall community health status by providing comprehensive and coordinated health education programs to county residents, informing residents of health risk factors and assessing, planning, implementing, promoting, and evaluating health risk reduction strategies through wellness programs and community wellness promotion. The Health Education division keeps the community informed of important health issues and available services, provides educational programs, develops promotional campaigns, and distributes health related information. Additionally, our department works to create and strengthen health partnerships throughout Denton County.

Thank you to our wonderful 2016 sponsors for our annual Denton County Dash 5k walk/run and Health Expo!
