In the Community
OCPHS has a long history of working with members of the community through maternal/child health programs, disease prevention programs and clinics, environmental health assessments and licensing for food, beverage and lodging facilities, and health promotion and protection opportunities. Public Health has been and continues to be an integral part of many community coalitions and advisory boards to improve the quality of life for our residents and visitors.
Public Health partners and collaborates with city government (planners, park and rec, administration, etc), health care, public and private schools (k-12), higher education, businesses, chamber of commerce, faith-based organizations and non-profits. Together we have made tremendous strides in helping make Olmsted County a great place to live, work and play.
