UP health departments form group to raise awareness of community services
MARQUETTE, MI— Six Upper Peninsula public health departments have joined forces to promote the importance of local public health.
The group wants to raise awareness of services provided in local communities and to build stronger relationships. The U.P. Local Public Health Partnership includes the Chippewa County, Dickinson-Iron District, LMAS District, Marquette County, and Western Upper Peninsula Health Departments, and Public Health, Delta and Menominee Counties.
A U.P.-wide media campaign has been launched, featuring real staff providing real services in the region. Partnership officials say they want people to know that, ”We live here. We work here. We care about you, your family and the communities we serve.”
