We’re glad you’re visiting our web site. If you want to learn how Public Health can help you, take a look at our Programs and Services section below, choose a subject area, and follow the links to the information you need. For up-to-date postings about current health concerns, and fact sheets on various health topics, visit Humboldt Health Alert.

Public Health is engaged in a broad range of activities designed to promote good health. We provide clinical and preventive services, and work with local health care providers and other community partners to connect people with the resources they need. We educate, advise, coach, and guide people toward healthier lives for themselves and their families. We inspect, test, monitor, inform, and enforce regulations that help keep you safe and well. We work with community design professionals to make our neighborhoods more health-promoting. We plan and prepare for emergency situations. We keep vital records of changes in our population and analyze health data.

Public Health is here for everyone, from individuals and families to the community as a whole. If you would like to speak with our staff, please refer to the contact information below.
