Welcome to Health Education!

Our Health Educators are available to provide and offer educational material, classes and seminars on health related issues. Their main goal is to promote Bladen County Health Department’s efforts in improving the overall health of Bladen County residents.

These services are available to all people and organizations throughout the county. We also promote programs such as: Eat Smart Move More, Weigh Less, Faithful Families, Eating Smart Moving More, Walking Programs, Safe Kids, Healthy Bladen Collaborative, and Health Education Programming.  We also offer monthly Diabetes Support Group Meetings that meet on the last Thursday of each month.
