to the North Dakota Department of Health website. It's amazing how public health
affects our lives every day. We breathe clean air and drink safe, sparkling
water. Our garbage is disposed of properly. We can do our jobs in smoke-free
workplaces and feel confident that the food we eat in restaurants is safe. Our
children are immunized against many diseases that struck fear into the heart of
every parent just a few decades ago. These accomplishments and more are due to
the efforts of public health at the state and local level.
