Environmental Public Health Assessments

All Minnesotans should have the opportunity to live a long, healthy life, regardless of their income, education, or ethnic background.  To make this an opportunity for all Minnesotans, we all have a role, small or large, in creating and maintaining healthy homes and communities. Healthier homes will result in healthier people, which leads to lower healthcare costs and more vibrant communities.
The Northwest Environmental Public Health Team (Kittson Healthcare Public Health, LifeCare Public Health, Norman-Mahnomen Public Health, North Valley Public Health, Pennington and Red Lake County Public Health, and Polk County Public Health) are accepting referrals for Environmental Public Health Assessment services. This service is provided free of charge for individuals living in these counties.

Our team uses well-documented, evidence-based interventions to address housing-related health hazards. The team focuses on the “Seven Principles of Healthy Homes”: Keep it dry, clean, well-ventilated, pest-free, contaminant-free, safe, and maintained.
The service described is free to your clients/patients who are residents of Kittson, Mahnomen, Marshall, Norman, Pennington, Polk, Red Lake, or Roseau counties.  Please use the Environmental Public Health Referral Form to make the referral.
