Bureau of Health Promotion

The Bureau of Health Promotion's goals are to implement wellness initiatives that reduce health risk factors, improve wellness and safety, and maintain a productive and active Howard County community and work force.

They accomplish this by:

  • Providing health education in Howard County communities, schools, worksites, and health care settings
  • Providing health information to the Howard County community about Health Department services and resources
  • Improving Howard County tobacco retailers’ awareness and compliance with Maryland tobacco laws
  • Partnering with community agencies to deliver effective health promotion and illness prevention services in Howard County
