With health clinics in Chapel Hill and Hillsborough, the Orange County Health Department works to enhance the quality of life, promote the health and preserve the environment for all people in Orange County.

We’ll start our trip in Hillsborough, the county seat and home to many county government offices, to learn more about the various programs of the local health department through an interactive scavenger hunt, then tour the facility and get to know departmental leaders before heading back to Chapel Hill.

Watch the Orange County Health Department’s introductory video prior to arrival.
