About Public Health Heroes
Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) began honoring public health Heroes in 2007 as a way to locally celebrate National Public Health Week. The annual public health award celebration recognizes the contributions that community members make through their work or volunteerism to protect and promote the health of the citizens of Jefferson County. The public health heroes awards honor people who live or work in Jefferson County and promote public health in their daily lives.
