The Niagara County Department of Health actively seeks partnerships with local educators to bring Public Health Education to students. The Department's Healthy Neighborhoods Program recognizes educators participating in this initiative by designating them as Honored Educators. Two educators from Niagara County have been recognized as Honored Educators by the Niagara County Department of Health. Mr. John Testa and Ms. Trish Bruning, both teachers at North Park Junior High School in Lockport, have brought Public Health  Education presentations into their classrooms. “We value our partnership with local educators and the tremendous health benefits to our communities when younger generations are empowered with the knowledge they need to make healthy choices,” stated Public Health Director Daniel J. Stapleton.


Public Health Education presentations are available to all schools in Niagara County through the Healthy Neighborhoods Program. Ms. Theresa McCabe, Public Health Educator and Manager of the Healthy Neighborhoods Program, will present the educators with certificates acknowledging the educators' commitment to their students wellbeing. “We appreciate teachers that recognize our children’s curiosity and thirst for knowledge. Our ability to team up with these teachers to share valuable public health messaging benefits our entire community,” stated Director of Environmental Health, Paul Dicky.
