To provide optimal care for our patients in Prince Edward County, the role of the health promoter is tailored and continuously adapting to our patients' needs. To promote health we will extend our reach into the community.

  • Support other organizations in the community in developing, delivering and improving various activities related to health.
  • Disseminate reliable health-related information to as many residents of Prince Edward County as possible, through community presentations, radio interviews, public speaking, among others.
  • Highlight awareness day, week, or month' themes for a variety of topics through the process of conducting and being involved with a variety of health promotion activities (example – November is diabetes awareness month, March is nutrition month).
  • Continuously increase knowledge and awareness of health-related community initiatives, groups and organizations being developed or improved.
  • Assist in motivating and empowering residents of Prince Edward County to develop and maintain a healthier lifestyle through leading various physical activity programs, setting a positive example, and acting as a role model.
