City Seal

Mayor Teri Johnston and the Key West City Commission topped off National Public Health Week with a proclamation recognizing our local Health Department.

“The Florida Department of Health in Monroe County works to protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county, and community efforts,” reads the proclamation. 

The department recently released Monroe County’s Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan, revealing our community’s priorities: health in all policies, access to care, and mental health and substance abuse.

“Although it's Public Health Week,” said Dr. Carla Fry, Health Department Administrator, “every day is a public health day. We have 95 tireless employees who work primarily behind the scenes to be sure your day is going to be a good one because you'll be healthy."

Natalie Aguilar, Carmel Cox, Jessica Lariz, Jennifer Lefelar, Lisset Ivey, Marvin Gifford, Dana Portillo, and Christela Brevil accepted the proclamation with Dr. Fry, Alison Kerr, and James Rachal.
