'Public Health' On The Table At Wicomico Co. Council Meeting

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - Public health was on the table at the Wicomico County Council meeting on Tuesday tonight.

Council members met with the county's public health officer, Lori Brewster, which reportedly happens twice a year in May and October.

Brewster says they have five priority areas to focus on, including obesity, diabetes, sexually transmitted infections, behavioral health and access, and asthma.

"Five of those are of concern," says Brewster. "We actually have subcommittees that are working diligently on trying to get the appropriate data and trying to determine a strategic plan and action plan on how to resolve those areas."

Brewster says they also have plans for council to meet with the health department's Behavioral Health Committee to discuss mental health and the county's heroin issue.
