NACO Seeks Public Health Coordinator

The recent COVID-19 global pandemic challenged Nevada’s public health system in ways that counties could not have imagined prior to March 2020.  In response to the pandemic counties stepped up, not only providing much of the local front-line response, but also developing new systems and programs to meet local public health needs and keep Nevadans safe.  Working with the State Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH), health districts, county boards of health and health departments, both the strengths and the weaknesses of the current system came to light.  Also, during the pandemic addiction recovery and behavioral health needs were exacerbated, including the impacts of the opioid epidemic on Nevadans and the specific public health challenges connected to the opioid epidemic.  To address these needs, the Nevada Association of Counties (NACO) is excited to announce the recruitment for the position of Public Health Coordinator.
