This week— April 4 to 10 — is Public Health Week. It’s an opportunity to shine a light on the role of public health and highlight the important issues in our community. Our mission is to identify and address the root causes of poor health, with local health departments leading the way. Just a few years ago, Public Health Week was a time to let everyone know what public health is and who the people are who do that work. Then COVID hit and public health was leading the news every single day.
