Disease Prevention and Control Program

Through our Disease Prevention and Control Program in conjunction with MDH, we monitor the occurrence of disease in Wabasha County, development strategies for preventing and controlling disease, and work to put those strategies into action.

We monitor for a broad range of legally reportable infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and HIV, and identify measures for preventing or controlling infectious disease outbreaks. We are also responsible for coordinating a community based Emerging Infections Program. We respond to reports of chronic disease "outbreaks" from health care providers and members of the public. In coordination with the Minnesota Department of Health, we conduct investigations of chronic disease problems in specific population groups.

We offer educational presentations on various diseases and health education topics.
