Local health officials, community partners, offer presentations to state chief

NORWICH – Members of the Chenango County Health Network and Health Department, Cornell Cooperative Extension, Area Agency on Aging and the Greenway Conservatory Board gathered with approximately 50 colleagues, community partners and New York State Commissioner of Health Dr. Richard Daines for several formal presentations in recognition of National Public Health Week.

Chenango County Health Department (CCHD) H1N1 School/Public Health Initiative Lead Coordinator Barbara McCarty’s presentation on the recent pandemic in particular received the commissioner’s praise, and he awarded CCHD Director Marcas Flindt with the state’s Balto Award, in “recognition for all the great work you’ve done.”

The initiative, which offered 72 clinics in only 75 days last year and provided treatment for all of the county’s schools, was lauded by the commissioner for its innovative approach in addressing the pandemic, and he said it was “important to recognize the terrific work that public health did here.”
