Who We Are
Prevention, people and partnerships sum up the work of local public health programs. The main purpose of public health is to make sure all of us have the opportunity to be healthy in mind, body and spirit. Most public health work is population-based, meaning it focuses on improving the health of the entire community rather than addressing individual health care needs.
The mission of Rio Grande County Public Health Agency is to protect and improve the health of the people of Rio Grande County, Colorado.
