What Is Public Health?
Public health in Nodaway County
Have you or a family member eaten in a restaurant, taken your child to a licensed day care, or received an immunization or flu shot? Then you have benefited from public health.
County Health Departments were created by Missouri statute back in the 1930s and their primary functions were caring for the indigent, tracking and controlling disease outbreaks, and conducting environmental inspections to assure food and water safety. Most health departments consisted of a nurse working for the county commission.
We still perform the CORE functions today. For example, we continuously monitor the county for communicable disease and must investigate confirmed cases to help contain a possible outbreak.
