Public Health Improvement Plan Approved

At the October 27th Board of Health meeting the 2014-2018 Public Health improvement Plan was approved by unanimous vote. This plan, a combined effect of the Fremont County Department of Public Health and Environment(FCDPHE), the Colorado Department of Health and Environment, local healthcare providers and the public, identifies the following top three public health priorities for Fremont County:

  • Mental Health and Substance Abuse
  • Tobacco Cessation
  • Maternal Health

FCDPHE will be working collaboratively with community partners as well as providing direct service to address these important issues. A copy of the completed plan is found at the link below.

If you have questions, please contact the FCDPHE at 276-7450.
