Alameda County Public Health Department

We recognize that residents are more than mere consumers of public health services. Many other issues (housing, employment, environment) can impact health. Therefore, our health department is involved in a variety of community-based activities that engage residents and community partners in the planning, evaluation and implementation of health activities. Some of those services and activities are profiled on this site.

The Fathers Corps is a county-wide team of male service providers trained to help strengthen families by fostering constructive engagement of fathers in the care and upbringing of their children.  Since June 2014, Fathers Corps has graduated 37 male Father Engagement Specialists and 13 Engagement Mentors. Currently Father Corps is recruiting male service providers to join the Corps.  Click here to view the INVITATION and, if interested, here to REGISTER.


Public Health Reminders
With most schools reopening in late August, there is still time to prepare for the 2017-18 school year. In addition to confirming the first day of school, when student registration starts, transportation and after-school options, and what healthy meals promote learning – parents should   verify medical requirements. These include ensuring your child has received required immunizations for all K-12 California students. Some students also may need physical exams, along with dental, vision and scoliosis screenings. Don’t forget to notify the school of your child’s health problems or medications.  Contact your school district to verify entry requirements.
