Public health focuses on improving and protecting community health and well-being, with an emphasis on prevention among large groups. This work is achieved by promoting healthy lifestyles, researching disease and injury prevention, and by detecting, preventing and responding to infectious diseases.
In addition to provide medical services, public health officials keep communities healthy through education, disaster relief and enduring communities have clean water to drink.
Health care workers face a higher risk of exposure to infectious diseases, especially in 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way health care is provided and added psychological distress to individuals working in the health care field.
Today, we recognize the tremendous impact public health workers have on our citizens and environment and extend our gratitude for all they do for our community.
