Pennyrile District Health Department oversees the operation of health clinics in Caldwell, Crittenden, Livingston, Lyon and Trigg counties in Kentucky. We understand that you want the healthiest life for your family. But, what many parents get wrong, is that it starts with self-care!

You can’t fully take care of your family if you’re wrestling with health concerns. So, take your own health seriously and your children will then learn from your example.

We are here to empower our community to take more control of their health. By making small changes in your diet and lifestyle, you can prevent some serious diseases. With your local health department you can:

-Get Vaccinated

-Find support during pregnancy

-Meet with a dietitian (must be referred by doctor)

-Take classes to improve your health

-Gain support for quitting smoking

-Receive low cost clinical services for you and your family

Don’t let obesity, addictions or even just past-due vaccinations keep you from living your best life.

Will you take action and become a healthier you? Let’s get started!

Children & Family Services

I Want to Quit Because…

3 out of 4 smokers want to quit. We believe you can do more than want to. 

There are many reasons to quit including health concerns, financial restraints and pressure from others. It’s easy to feel alone when you make the decision to quit, but we want you to know that’s not true. On average, 450 others are making the same choice to seek support today. Sign up today for your support coach!
