Community Health


The Community Health Division educates all residents of Tazewell County to make healthy choices and live healthy lives. 

Community Health staff members educate on important health issues and ways to prevent disease, promote positive health behaviors, assess the community's health, and advocate for and enforce policy and system change.

The Tazewell County Health Department’s Community Health Division has submitted a Letter of Intent to apply for FY21 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) grant funds.

If awarded, the purpose of the program is to provide opportunities for communities to establish or expand activities in community learning centers that:

  1. Provide opportunities for academic enrichment, including providing tutorial services to help students to meet the challenging state academic standards.
  2. Offer students additional services, programs and activities. Activities may include youth development activities, physical fitness, nutrition and health education, art, and technology education programs.
  3. Offer families of students served by the community learning centers opportunities for active and meaningful engagement in their children’s education, including opportunities for literacy and educational development.
