Message from our Director, Rene LeBlanc

Rene LeBlancWelcome to the South Central Public Health District website! We are continually striving to make this resource a friendlier, easier way of accessing the vast array of programs and services provided by the Public Health District.

Prevent. Promote. Protect. Our district's dedicated professionals carry out that mission every day through a wide range of essential programs and activities that touch the lives of the citizens of the eight counties we serve in south central Idaho.

Public health is community focused. Disease prevention and health promotion programs protect entire communities-not just individuals-from communicable diseases, epidemics, and contaminated food and water. All south central Idaho citizens benefit from adequate waste treatment, safe food handling by restaurants, infectious disease control, immunized children, and emergency preparedness.

I invite you to browse through the website and learn more about how our district works to promote and protect this community. We are happy to provide this service to you and welcome your feedback on this site.

Thank you.
Rene LeBlanc, MS, RS
Director, South Central Public Health District
