Hello Health

letters spelling out hello and health with a green speech bubble with a waving hand icon inside

Hello Health is a new series brought to you Cumberland County Department of Public Health. Each month, we’ll be exploring a different health topic important to Cumberland County with the goal to improve health literacy in our community.  You’ll hear from Health Department staff and special guests. We want individuals to be able to find, understand, and use information and services so they can make informed decisions about their health. 

Join us the 4th Wednesday of each month 12-1 PM live on CCNTV or join us online. Register for each session by clicking this link. 

After each episode in the series, we’ll share the links and community resources discussed during the series to this page.
