The Health and Wellness Department focuses primarily on prevention and health education. It is ran by our new Health Educator, Amber Williams. The department is responsible for community outreach and wellness program facilitation. We are currently implementing a county-wide worksite wellness program as well as partnering with Graham County Schools and Harris Regional Hospital to implement a school employee wellness program. Educational presentations will be held as time permits and will be open to the public. Information about wellness activities, presentations, and programs available can be found here.
The Graham County Substance Use Coalition is also forming to address the critical problem of substance use disorder among county residents. Programs and strategies will vary, and range from prevention activities, to treatment options.
