Public Health

Public Health is the first line of defense in maintaining and improving the public’s health status.

With a client base and scope of services as diverse as the county's population, a dedicated staff of more than 425 public health professionals and annual funding resources totaling approximately $60 million, TCPH services truly touch everyone, every day, everywhere.
