Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Section

The Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Section is comprised of five branches: Chronic Disease; Diabetes Prevention & Control; Primary Prevention (including the Community and Worksite Wellness Program); Tobacco Prevention and Control; and the Office of Surveillance, Evaluation and Research (OSER).

The Section serves Texans by creating, promoting and guiding public health programs across the lifespan to promote healthy lifestyles and educate, prevent and manage chronic diseases, many of which account for the majority of illness and death in Texas.
