"Our mission is to protect, promote, and enhance the health and well-being of all residents in Pratt County, and their environment, through the prevention and control of disease."
A health community starts with you!
Public health promotes and protects the health of people and the communities where they live, learn, work, pray, and play.
Public health protects and improves communities by: preventing epidemics and the spread of disease; promoting healthy lifestyles for children and families; protecting against hazards in homes, work, communities and the environment; assuring high quality health care services; and preparing for and responding to emergencies. There is little of daily life not related to or influenced by public health.
