Community Health Education
The Community Health Education Department of Capital Health is dedicated to improving the health and well being of the community, as well as to the prevention and early detection of disease among people living in our community.
We accomplish these goals by providing health education and other related services to the general public, as well as to members of community and business organizations.
These services consist of the speakers bureau, health fairs, health screenings, health education lecture series, and the walking clubs.
Our services are available to everyone living and working in Mercer and Bucks Counties. Operational hours and days are flexible and depend on the educational needs of our community members.
