Chronic Disease Prevention Program
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.
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.
