To better inform residents, community partners, stakeholders and visitors about public health concerns, events and programs, the Southern Nevada Health District has expanded its communication efforts to Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.

Through the use of 14 specialized accounts, we are able to promote: HIV/STD testing and prevention, correct condom use and pregnancy prevention for teens, flu shot clinic locations, healthy living, public health programs, Medical Reserve Corps volunteers and much, much more.
