Message from our Director 

DOH-Nassau staff is key to the provision of essential public health services. Through their daily work, each staff member strives to meet their position and program specific goals as well as continually aligning with our overall public health mission. Each team member is a public health ambassador!

Currently, our local strategic plan has four priorities:

  • Population Health (Increasing school immunization rates, decreasing infant mortality, reducing chronic disease & health disparities, increasing breastfeeding rates)

  • Individual Health (increasing access to contraception, increasing HIV testing, linkage to care/decreasing viral load)

  • Health Protection (mitigating threats, increasing community resilience, strengthening epidemiology surveillance and linkage with community partners),

  • Organizational Excellence (Increasing staff training opportunities, promoting employee wellness, increasing IT network capacity, resources & support, market & provide PH role clarity to customers/stakeholders, promote cultural competency & health equity)

Additionally, through the Community Health Improvement Planning process, the Partnership for a Healthier Nassau has chosen the three priority areas of:

  • Access to Care

  • Substance Abuse & Behavioral Health

  • Transportation
