Chronic Disease Prevention Program


Mission Statement


The mission of the Sutter County Chronic Disease Prevention Program is to improve the health of Sutter County residents specifically in the area of chronic disease through preventive education, and through providing disease management tools to those who are living with a chronic condition.

Program Information


None of us will escape the toll of chronic disease whether experiencing it personally or having a family member or friend suffer from the effects. Typically, chronic disease is defined as diseases of long duration and slow progression. Heart disease, stroke, cancer, respiratory diseases and diabetes are common chronic diseases that are causes of death in our community.

The chronic disease prevention staff conducts presentations in the community, participates in community events, and teaches workshops to increase awareness and educate interested and concerned individuals in Sutter County.

Coming Soon: Diabetes Empowerment Education Program (DEEP) Workshops in English and Spanish.

  • DEEP is a multi-cultural, bilingual, diabetes self-management curriculum that has been shown to be successful in helping participants take control of their disease and reduce the risk of complications. DEEP was developed for use in low-income, racial and ethnic minority populations.
