Health Department Reports and Updates

PUBLIC HEALTH CONNECTS US ALL

From the CDC Foundation: Public health is the science of protecting and improving the health of people and their communities. This work is achieved by promoting healthy lifestyles, researching disease and injury prevention, and detecting, preventing and responding to infectious diseases. Overall, public health is concerned with protecting the health of entire populations. These populations can be as small as a local neighborhood, or as big as an entire country or region of the world.

In the Public Health Reports and Updates section of our website, you will find publications that detail the local work being done by your local health department, as well as Health Alerts and Updates from the CDC.
