Shawano-Menominee Counties Health Department

Public Health protects and improves the health of families and communities through promotion of healthy lifestyles, research for disease and injury prevention and detection, and control of infectious diseases of an entire population.
Public Health professionals try to prevent problems from happening or recurring through implementing educational programs, recommending policies, administering services and conducting research. Public health also works to equalize the quality of health and health care for everyone in the community.

Our vision is "Healthy People in Healthy Shawano and Menominee Counties".

Our mission is to "Assure the health of Shawano and Menominee Counties by promoting healthy lifestyles, preventing illness and disability, and protecting communities".
