Charles County Department of Health, MD


Local Health Department Receiving Technical Assistance: Charles County Department of Health, MD

NACCHO is currently offering technical assistance support to local health departments to improve their capacity to develop or enhance health promotion programs for people living with disabilities through coordination of existing health department and community services.

Charles County Department of Health is receiving technical assistance from Central Connecticut Health District, and they are bringing the Healthy Lifestyles curriculum to their community, by first going to a train the trainer program. Charles County conducted a Web-based Disability and Health Perceived Barriers survey to assess barriers experienced by individuals with disabilities in regards to health promotion and disease prevention.

As a result of the training received, support meetings will be offered which will incorporate Healthy Lifestyles to people living with disabilities in the community and especially to the 18–30 age group with special needs.
