About Us

It is the mission of Josephine County Public Health to provide leadership for quality public health services consistent with laws, available resources, and community support through prevention of disease, health education, and promotion and protection of the community and the environment.

Our collective skills and experience within the realms of environmental health, emergency preparedness, nutrition and parenting, and reproductive health and medicine, allow and compel us to coordinate all available health services and assess community health needs.

We strive to accomplish our mission in a professional, dedicated, sensitive and effective manner.

We believe in vaccinations because it is easier, wiser, and more humane to proactively prevent disease than to reactively treat illness.
