Union County Public Health has been serving residents since 1937 with primarily prevention services. The remarkable reduction in infectious and communicable disease has resulted largely from immunizations, sanitation, enforcement of state and local laws, and other intervention activities. Education, nutrition intervention, consultation, and other health services designed to improve health outcomes have resulted in improved health status and general quality of life. Public Health provides continual surveillance of health conditions in the county, sends statistical information to the state, and networks with the state for information vital for health program planning.
Public Health is here to serve you in the prevention of disease, promotion of health, and the protection of our community’s health. Across North Carolina public health reaches everybody, everywhere, everyday.
