Public Health is Essential

Public Health is responsible for tracking, responding to, and preventing costly food and water contamination and disease outbreaks.   Even though this is essential to protecting the public's health, new, complex threats and recession budget cuts have made it harder for the public health system to protect and serve Washington's families and communities.  Rebuilding and refocusing the public health services in the State of Washington means we can better monitor and coordinate emergency response keeping our communities safe, reducing costs for taxpayers and protecting our local economy.
