The Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Section is comprised of four branches: Primary Prevention Branch, Child Health and Safety Branch, Diabetes Prevention and Control Branch, and Adult Health and Chronic Disease Branch.  The Section focuses on the prevention and control of chronic diseases and their complications through a combination of primary and secondary population-based prevention efforts.  These chronic conditions account for the majority of illness and death in Texas.
