Building a nation of safe and healthy communities starts here in our own community. Safe and healthy communities involve a wide variety of public health efforts; are our recreational pools and beaches safe to swim in, are our children safe from lead poisoning, do we have access to safe exercise and walking routes, do we know the early signs of tick borne disease and are we prepared for emergencies?
To recognize National Public Health Week (NPHW), the La Crosse County Health Department will spotlight their work to ensure a safe and healthy community. Program highlights will include radio news program interviews and daily media outreach. Watch for the following program highlights throughout NPHW, April 4-8, 2016:
