2020 Public Health Shining Stars

For the past few years NCHD has recognized Public Health Shining Stars that have been nominated by NCHD staff for their partnership in public health efforts of the previous year during National Public Health Week. This year we want to honor all of our partners and members of the community for assisting in the COVID-19 response of 2020.

“We are super grateful to everyone who has stepped up and gone above and beyond and sacrificed this past year,” said Trish McClain, Director of NCHD. “It truly has taken a community wide response.”
