Mission Statement

To protect and enhance the health of the people and environment of San Miguel County by identifying and equitably addressing existing and emerging public health needs.

  1. Statement on Structural Inequity

San Miguel County Public Health acknowledges that long-standing systemic racism, including economic and environmental injustice, has created conditions that negatively affect marginalized communities, particularly people of color. These conditions, which limit opportunities for optimal health and influence individual behaviors, are critical predictors of health outcomes. To realize a future where all Coloradans can thrive, we must be leaders in undoing policies and practices that have contributed to these inequities.
