It’s National Health Educators Week!
We’re kicking off National Health Education Week this week! Today is about making health for all a reality. The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department recognizes that the health and well-being of communities are dependent on the physical, social, environmental and economic factors present in these communities. Communities that are under-resourced and under-represented, with health inequities that are most evident, have historically been silenced and ignored. They have had their trust violated with regard to economic and educational opportunities, environmental safety, access to health care, quality health care service delivery and education and their overall ability to thrive. Our dedicated health educators work daily to help Lexington be well.
