The Florida Department of Health in Duval County (DOH-Duval) actively participates in community events and health fairs. DOH-Duval provides the following health screenings: HIV/AIDS, blood pressure, Body Mass Index, blood glucose, and cholesterol.
DOH-Duval monitors issues that impact citizens at the health zone level. This allows appropriate allocation of resources as well as targeted activities.
Health education and information is a vital part of what DOH-Duval offers. We work with individuals to assure they are informed about leading health issues in the community. This approach helps them to become better managers of their own health.
