Chronic Disease Prevention

Wayne County Public Health’s Chronic Disease Prevention Program works to help provide a high quality of life for all residents and works to eliminate health disparities within our county.

Chronic diseases – such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, and arthritis – are the leading causes of disability and death in New York State and throughout the United States. More than 40% of New York adults suffer from a chronic disease. Although common and costly, many chronic diseases are also preventable.

The Chronic Disease Prevention Programs provided by Wayne County Public Health are composed of the following topics:

  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Stroke
  • Cancer Services (Cancer Services Program of the Finger Lakes Region)
 
Leading Causes of Death Data New York State Department of Health
