Supporting healthy worksites throughout Oregon
The Healthy Worksites initiative supports the Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention (HPCDP) framework through a strategic focus on the worksite setting. Strategies include policy interventions and worksite campaigns to reduce chronic disease risk factors and promote self-management of health issues.
5 Year Strategic Plan
The 5-Year Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention (HPCDP) Strategic Plan tackles chronic disease prevention with a comprehensive, community-wide approach to help people eat better, move more, live tobacco free, and take care of themselves. This means achieving better health, better care, and lower health care costs for all Oregonians.
