Public Health Administrator
It is my honor to introduce the Fiscal Year 2018 Annual Report of the Lawrence County Health Department. 2018 was a year of unprecedented change in the provision of health care for our country. As we look at many of the issues ahead, a common theme emerges – the role of public health. Everything from poverty to climate change to gun violence to social justice can all be addressed from a public health lens. 2018 underscored the critical importance of the power of public health. More than ever, we are encouraged to continue to find innovative strategies that promote/support public health.
