March 16-20 is Environmental Health Professionals Week
March 16-20 is Environmental Health Professionals Week in honor of the numerous registered sanitarians working across the state to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their fellow Kentuckians.
Environmental health professionals help ensure the safety of restaurants, grocery stores, supermarkets, food production facilities, schools, hotels, motels, mobile home parks, public swimming pools and tattoo businesses through routine health inspections. They also provide support for other health programs that target issues such as lead-based paint, septic systems, radon, milk, water, quality assurance, animal rabies and many more.
The Public Health Environmental Health Team: Ben White, Laura Sandusky, Skip Castleman, Joy Spencer, Jaime Lundblad, Luke Mathis, Danielle Wells, Pam Hopkins, Amy Sullivan, Jessica Cobb, Matthew Yarnall, Barrett Schoeck, Russell Cantrell, Nathan Powell, Kara Stanfield and Ralph McCracken.
