Living in the Northland, we're blessed with an abundance of public health organizations and outlets available to us.  The services that they provide make our region a healthy one!  To that end, officials with the St. Louis County Public Health department are seeking nominations so that individuals and groups can be recognized in their annual Public Health Achievement Awards.

The awards will be presented at the St. Louis County Board meeting scheduled for April 2, 2019.  That also coincides with National Public Health Week. This marks the fourth year that St. Louis County has recognized the achievements of local health outlets.

Nominees can include both individuals and organizations that contributed to the general health of our region, helped with community health improvement outcomes, collaboration, or advocacy.

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, March 6.  To learn more about the awards and to submit your own nominations, click here to visit the page set apart on the St. Louis County's website.
