Community Collaborations

Health educators work collaboratively with other organizations in Wayne County in providing health education services to adolescents. For example, health educators are involved weekly in providing counseling and group education to the local school based health centers, better known as W.I.S.H. (Wayne Initiative for School Health).

Health educators also provide services to local high schools per contract with the local Wayne County Board of Education. Additionally, health educators serve on local councils and task forces whose mission is the prevention of teenage pregnancy.

We are very grateful to have had such wonderful cooperation with various agencies, organizations, and local schools in this community. It will take all of us working together to tackle the problem of teenage pregnancy.
