National Public Health Week

Friday - Over the course of time, the world has transformed through cyclical climate change.  Researchers assure us we are now in one of those transformational changes again. As time moves on, we may see changes in biological lives of animals, plants, and microorganisms that can cause disease. Experts forecast more unusual weather patterns and changes that can cause natural disasters and impact life and resources as we know them.

As for Public Health, we can be impacted by insects that make their way to parts of the world that have never seen such organisms. Example - ticks that can transmit diseases are showing up in areas that they have never inhabited before. The number of cases of Lyme disease have increased considerably over the last decade here in Yates County.  It has become necessary to address these changes in order to maintain population health and safety. 

As natural disasters occur like severe drought, continual flooding, rapidly spreading fires, earthquakes, more severe hurricanes, and more numerous tornadoes, areas of our country that had been very productive regions may become useless for crop production.  Very concerted efforts will need to be imagined and developed to minimize damages and promote new benefits for mankind. 

Public Health needs to stay in the forefront of all these changes to prevent diseases from spreading, promote health and well-being, and protect against unknown forces.
