Duties

The agency goals are the following:

  • To continually assess community health needs in order to establish and maintain programs
  • To provide health education for the promotion of healthy lifestyles
  • To coordinate and provide immunization services to decrease vaccine preventable disease
  • To prevent and contol the occurrence of communicable disease through investigation, counseling, and education
  • To strengthen families through health education and the provision of maternal/child health services
  • To establish and maintain working partnerships with other agencies to improve the health of the community
  • To provide a broad range of school health services including screening programs, educational resources, consultations, and referrals
  • To implement program evaluation methods to assure program effectiveness

The Public Health Department is statutorily responsible for the core functions of assessment provided to ensure the health of the community. The Public Health Department works collaboratively with the State Division of Public Health, Department of Health and Family Services.

The job of public health is building healthy communities. A healthy community requires more than medical care. It requires protection from dangers that can threaten the health of the entire population. It requires good information about the nature, magnitude and causes of health problems. It requires education about what individuals and the community can do to reduce health risks. A healthy community assures an environment in which its members can safely work and play. The mission of Public Health is to prevent disease, injury, disability and premature death. This includes protecting peoples health from threats in the environment and promoting health through risk reduction and public education.
