Since it's formation in 1978, TriCounty Health Department has been governed by a nine-member Board of Health which is structured to allow for broad public representation of all people in Daggett, Duchesne and Uintah Counties. The unpaid terms of board members are staggered. Members are either elected officials or appointees. Board members are dedicated to furthering the health and well being of Uintah Basin citizens. The Board of Health meets bi-monthly and is responsible for determining department program direction, as well as policies relating to programs, and approving the department budget.
TriCounty Health Department is dedicated to providing resources, education, and skills to improve quality of life in the community by utilizing the appropriate Health Promotion techniques. We've updated many of our programs to more closely meet the needs of the TriCounty residents. For example, we are now able to provide education about car seats and booster seats. These items can be purchased at a low cost and are critical to the safety of our children.
We also provide support to the Gold Medal Schools Program. This program encourages schools to establish policy and environmental supports that give students and staff more opportunities for physical activity and nutritious food choices.
