Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention

The goal of our Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention (CDIP) Department is to reduce the burden of preventable chronic diseases important to public health in Windsor-Essex. We work to increase the number of people in Windsor-Essex who live, work, play, and learn in healthy environments that prevent chronic diseases. We focus on the adoption of behaviours and skills associated with reducing the risk of chronic diseases through increased community participation in developing integrated and comprehensive local programs.
