Public Health Heroes honored

From page A6 | April 17, 2014 |

I am writing as we wrap up National Public Health Week activities at the Yolo County Health Department. One of those activities was recognition of our 2014 Public Health Heroes.

The Master Gardeners were honored for enabling residents to grow their own produce and for their contributions to our new community garden. Davis and UC Davis Fire Chief Nate Trauernicht was honored for teaching sidewalk CPR at community events, partnering with us to provide flu vaccinations and for serving as chairman of the Emergency Medical Committee.

Others who have been key partners in contributing to public health in the past year also were recognized, including the Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health Advisory Board; First 5 Yolo; Fetal and Infant Mortality Review Team; Woodland Joint Unified School District school nurses; Health Council Fluoridation Subcommittee; Healthy Yolo Steering Committee; Woodland Bike Campaign; and past and present Kaiser physicians, including Drs. Rick Baker, Tia Will and Yvonne Otani.

Along with recognizing our Public Health Heroes, we held the second annual Public Health and Wellness Fair. More than 30 agencies and programs were represented, with displays and information about nutrition, sexually transmitted infections, CPR, lead poisoning, traffic safety, the dangers of smoking and distracted driving, services for children with physical disabilities and food bank services, just to name a few.

Public Health Week may have concluded, but the Yolo County Health Department keeps working toward a healthier community every day of the year.

Constance Caldwell, M.D.
Yolo County health officer, Woodland
