Public Health Forced To Cut Budget by More Than $17 million in 2 years

The letter was sent to all 18 District Health Directors today, and announces cuts of more than $17 million over the next 2 years. These cuts follow several years of cuts which have resulted in reductions in staff and services in many county health departments.
