"Caring commitment to community health by promoting individual health, preventing disease and disability, and protecting against environmental risk, through education and intervention."

The focus of a public health agency is to prevent rather than treat a disease through surveillance of cases and the promotion of healthy behaviors.

New Rule for School

A new state law requires all California public and private students in grades 7-12 to be immunized against pertussis or “whooping cough” before they start school this fall.  Amador County Public Health and Sutter Amador Hospital advise parents to contact their primary care provider now to “avoid the rush”.
