QVHD Open House
Quinnipiack Valley Health District (QVHD) Open House
Public was invited to learn about public health services, discuss ways to strengthen health of community
On July 22, 2014, Quinnipiack Valley Health District hosted an open house for the community to learn about the programs and services it offers.
The open house was part of “Lead Public Health,” a state and local effort to engage a broad spectrum of stakeholders in a dialogue about what public health services should be available to every resident of Connecticut. “From smoke free public places to immunization clinics; from clean drinking water to “Click it or Ticket” reminders on the highway, public health is everywhere – protecting Connecticut’s health by safeguarding the places where we live, learn, work, and play,” said state Department of Public Health Deputy Commissioner Katharine Lewis. “Through Lead Public Health, we hope to create a demand among municipal leaders, legislators and the public for efficient and effective public health services for every Connecticut resident.”
