Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) has launched a new website to provide the community with up-to-date information relating to public health issues, initiatives, programs and services.  

The new website has a fresh new look with improved navigation, scannable content, and is mobile-friendly so it is easy to view on mobile phones and tablets.  Most of the site is also translated into Spanish.  

One of the new features of the newly redesigned website is a blog.  “It will tell the story of the breadth of initiatives and services we provide, give examples of our work with partners and the community, and provide our own perspective on national, state, and local news and how it affects public health and our work,” says Sarah Mattes, Communications Supervisor for PHMDC.   

Another feature on the site is a quick links function, which will get you to some of the most requested information faster.    

“You will find information on the more visible things we do like giving immunizations, inspecting restaurants, screening for sexually transmitted infections and monitoring our beaches.  Along with this, our new website provides a look at the less visible aspects of our work, like working with partners to support community initiatives that focus on health equity and address the root causes of poor health outcomes,” explains Mattes.  

“We hope people will check out our new website to get a glimpse at the wide range of things we do and how we work towards our vision of healthy people and healthy places.”
