Public Health

Public Health is the science of protecting and improving the health of people and their communities by:

  • Detecting, preventing and responding to infectious diseases
  • Promoting healthy lifestyles
  • Providing immunization services
  • Researching disease and injury prevention

The goal of the health department is to improve and protect the health of people living in all of our great city’s neighborhoods, zip codes, and communities. To this end, the department seeks opportunities for improving service, value, and accountability to community members and stakeholders.
