Public Health

Public Health's goal is to protect, promote, and improve the health, environment, and quality of life to the residents of Elbert County. The primary purpose of public health is to assure the conditions in which people can be healthy.

Most of the work of public health agencies is population based; that is, it focuses on improving the health of the entire community.

Public Health Services are available to the entire community and are partly funded by tax dollars. Elbert County Public Health is devoted to preventative services and education. We are unable to offer emergency or sick care.

The survey is confidential. The information you provide during the survey will be combined with answers from other people and will be compiled in a summary report.
