In celebration of National Public Health Week, the Northeast Colorado Health Department held an open house Thursday, April 10. While inviting the public in to browse educational booths, enjoy healthy snacks and enter for chances to win door prizes, the department also took the opportunity to recognize several community members and facilities across northeast Colorado for their dedication to public health and excellence in food safety.
NCHD kicked off their open house with their annual Public Health Shining Star awards. In its seventh year, this award is given by NCHD staff members to acknowledge the efforts of others that champion public health in their own communities.
“This annual award is an opportunity for our department to acknowledge that public health really does involve the public,” said Dr. Tony Cappello, NCHD’s public health director. “We work with so many individuals and agencies that foster and promote the health and well-being of our communities and environments. This award is our chance to publicly recognize those efforts.”
