What is Community Health?

Community health, a branch of public health, is a theory-driven process of protecting and improving the health of communities through education, promotion of healthy lifestyles, and research for disease and injury prevention. Community health professionals analyze the effect on health of genetics, personal choice and the environment in order to develop programs that protect the health of your family and community.
