About Us

The Office of the State Public Health Director provides public health policy and direction to the public health programs within the Division, and ensures that the disparate programs within and outside the Division create an effective and coherent public health system for the state. This includes extensive interactions with a range of state and local agencies and organizations, many of them outside the health care community.
