The Eastern Highlands Health District strives to put our motto of "preventing illness and promoting wellness" at the forefront of all services we offer. The environmental health program provides the basic duties for which the Health District is best known, and their services are the backbone of our efforts to "prevent illness" in our communities. Complementing this effort, the public health emergency preparedness program develops and secures the critical resources necessary to prepare for and respond to a public health emergency. Additionally, promoting wellness continues to be a guiding force as we explore areas of need in our communities.
EHHD works to protect the health of the community through providing a variety of environmental health services.
The development, updating, and training on the use of public health emergency preparation plans are opportunities to strengthen the public health infrastructure in your community and beyond.
