What We Do

The Health & Wellness Division of the Nevada County Public Health Department focuses on programs and services that emphasize primary prevention of chronic diseases. Primary prevention, in public health, is concerned with preventing the onset of disease instead of focusing on treating a disease that has already occurred. We do this through programs that make change at the policy and environmental levels, as well as working directly with youth, low-income populations, and community partners to make the healthy choice the easy choice.​
