MANSFIELD, OH- This year, Richland Public Health has decided to release their 2017 Annual Report in a new format.

Previously the report has been distributed as a paper insert in newspapers and is more often than not just thrown away or forgotten. This year they decided to save some trees and make the report easily accessible on their newly redesigned website.

Health Educator Reed Richmond says the web format makes the report more interesting to read with graphics that move as they pop up and videos you can watch.

Richmond also says the report is a great way to learn about all of the things Richland Public Health does in the community.

"The important thing about the annual report is it shows you all the other services we're doing. People don't realize the depth of stuff- when I talk about Environmental Health- what does Environmental health do? And that's just one division, we've got Animal Control... We have a division called Community Health and Prevention Sciences... We have the Vital Stats Division... We've got Public Health Nursing... And then we have the Clinic here... So there's a ton of stuff that's going on at Richland Public Health and the Annual Report summarizes it in an easily readable and accessible manner. And we try to point out: we have services to keep people healthier and safer in Richland County from birth to senior citizen."

As an added incentive to read the Annual Report, Richland Public Health will hold a drawing for an Amazon Echo Dot. To enter the drawing, read the Report and fill out a brief survey at

If you would like a print copy of the Annual Report, call 419.774.4500 and a copy will be mailed to you.
