Education

You’re invited!

The Southwest Utah Public Health Department is pleased to offer 3 new opportunities for health education to help you develop healthier habits and to become a healthier YOU.

Online Course – clase de español próximamente

The online course will help you take important steps to a healthier lifestyle. It is a self-paced course, and each step takes about 15 minutes to complete.

This course outlines 10 simple steps to help you reach your healthier YOU goals. The steps are accompanied by short readings, engaging videos, and action steps. In addition, the course offers support from the course instructor and a registered dietitian.

As an incentive, after completing the course you will be eligible for a free A1C test or a home blood pressure monitor. The A1C test involves a simple finger prick. You will get your results within a few minutes, placing you in the range of normal, prediabetic, or diabetic. To receive a free A1C test or home blood pressure monitor you must be at least 18 years old and a resident of Washington, Iron, Kane, Garfield, or Beaver County.
