Public health promotes and protects the health of people and the communities where they live, learn, work and play. This includes providing women’s health services, maternal/child health services, prevention of child fatalities, immunizations, the WIC program, and other public health services. Along with these services, we develop emergency preparedness responses and track communicable diseases and zoonotic diseases, including West Nile, Hantavirus, Plague, and Rabies.
