Health First Howard County


Health First Howard County Initiative:

Howard County prioritizes public health for a thriving community.

The Board of Commissioners recognizes the crucial role of public health in building a healthier Howard County and improving residents' quality of life. They strongly support initiatives that maintain and strengthen core public health services at the county level, prioritizing local input and flexibility to effectively address community needs.

A healthy community is a thriving community and the key to achieving that lies in ensuring everyone has access to basic public health services. No matter where you live in Howard County, you deserve equal opportunity to enjoy good health. That's why we believe these services are best delivered at the local level, by those who have their finger on the pulse of their communities and understand their unique needs.
