Local Health Departments are government agencies who are on the front lines of public health. But what is public health and when should you call your local health department? Public health promotes and protects the health of people and the communities where they live, learn, work and play. While a doctor treats people who are sick, those of us working in public health try to prevent people from getting sick or injured in the first place. We promote wellness by encouraging healthy behaviors and provide education on how to incorporate healthy behaviors into your life. While we welcome your calls and questions anytime, listed below are a few examples of events in your life when we can help!
