GENESEO, N.Y., Apr. 19, 2023 – Livingston County is proud to join the National Association of Counties in celebrating County Health Day on Wednesday in recognition of the important work being done to support our communities’ health and well-being.
The Livingston County Department of Health is a wide-ranging institution that sponsors several innovative programs that provide residents with services ranging from mental health and suicide prevention programs to rabies clinics, lead poison prevention measures, vaccinations, hospice, prenatal, breastfeeding and parenting seminars, dog control, health inspections and more. Additionally, it provides educational resources for citizens including recent recalls, County health data, laws and regulations and emergency preparedness materials.
The Department of Health also facilitates important informational sessions regarding opioids and has worked with members of the community, Sheriff’s Department, Social Services and other key stakeholders to develop an action plan to combat the impact of drug use within Livingston County.
“The services and programming available through the County’s Department of Health are second to none,” said David L. LeFeber, Chair of the Livingston County Board of Supervisors. “Our award-winning programs and forward-thinking initiatives in mental health, maternal well-being, environmental health and other important areas are often recognized at national levels. I’m proud of what our County Department of Health has accomplished and look forward to building upon its successes.”
While its own offerings are broad, the Department of Health has also established several key partnerships throughout the County and beyond to ensure that residents have continuous access to effective healthcare, counseling services and more through collaborations with CASA Trinity, The Arc, Mental Health Association, New York State and others.
“I’d like to thank the Board of Supervisors for its tireless commitment to supporting our mission to improve the lives of our residents,” added Jennifer Rodriguez, Livingston County’s Public Health Director. “We are dedicated to providing our communities with the resources and tools they need to live happy, healthy lives and I’m proud of the work our staff does on a daily basis.”
