It is primarily a regulatory agency, and strives to effectively enforce all applicable laws and rules and regulations pertaining to public health in order to preserve and protect public health - its major goal and responsibility. Additionally, the board continually evaluates and identifies community health needs so it can provide appropriate programs and services that lend to the promotion of public health for all.
