Public Health

"Today, we are facing many new threats to public health - AIDS, rising rates of sexually transmitted diseases, smoking-related illnesses, bioterrorism, and chemical pollution of our air, soil, and water, to name a few. Today’s major health problems are related more to behavior and lifestyle than to germs. This has expanded the Health Department’s role to include more public education aimed at helping individuals understand and reduce their risks by changing their behavior."
