A Healthy Fresno County, can only be built and maintained with each pillar sharing the weight of that structure. Learn more about the Eight Pillars of Public Health below.
A pillar is "a person or thing regarded as reliably providing essential support for something". In Fresno County, the public health, that is, the opportunity for each and every one of us to live to our full potential of health and well-being, rests firmly atop eight such pillars. Each of these pillars is essential to the structure of public health, and all must be themselves intact, and perfectly aligned with each other. Learn more about these Eight Pillars of Public Health and how health and wellness is constructed around them in Fresno County.
I would like to hear from you. What does a Healthy Fresno County look like to you? Email me at ToYourHealth@co.fresno.ca.us.
Here's to your health!
Dr. Ken Bird
