Sarah Joseph is back on the podcast with Dave Moore after keeping us all informed during the COVID-19 pandemic. So what does the health department do exactly when there is not a global pandemic?
Sarah walks us through the programs that benefit our community. They vary widely from combatting food deserts, focusing on behavior and mental health, raising awareness of recycling programs and restaurant cleanliness. They've launched several new programs as well. Pueblo's Everyday Heroes aims to be a positive influence on youth. ACES encourages everyone to acknowledge their previous traumatic experiences and grow from them. As well as promoting public art in neighborhoods around the old Smelter Site.
All of the programs discussed on the podcast can be found at pueblohealth.org.
