We're testing a new way to do online services. Visit our Services Directory - use it and tell us what you think!
Olmsted County is celebrating National County Government Month (NCGM) in April. We will share how we are "Connecting the Unconnected," demonstrating how counties deliver people-centered services and connect communities.
One example is our work to promote the health of our communities.
Olmsted County Public Health is making Olmsted County a healthier place to live, learn, work, play and age. We have several specific programs designed to help children, families and adults improve their current and future health and receives over 3,400 referrals from community organizations and agencies into these programs.
Our staff also provide community resources and link people to needed services and care. This includes help finding medical, dental and vision providers, accessing appropriate car seats, and assuring they get the needed well child exams. Consultations are provided to businesses, citizens, organizations, and visitors who have specific questions or concerns related to healthy behaviors, work or environmental hazards or communicable diseases.
Educating people, linking them to appropriate resources and empowering them to make positive changes will lead to improved health overall. It's what we do!
Olmsted County is proud to be Connecting the Unconnected.
