About Us

Welcome to the Division of Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention website.

Our primary mission is to help make Los Angeles County a healthier place. In collaboration with our community partners and key stakeholders, we focus on reducing the risk and burden of chronic disease, injury, and social conditions that affect health to promote well-being and quality of life for all residents in this diverse county. Good health provides the foundation for a strong quality of life for our children, families, and friends. When we focus on prevention and make our communities places of health, safety, and opportunity for social and economic growth, everyone benefits.

I encourage you to explore the resources we have listed on these pages and appreciate your interest in our work.
