Michigan law creates the position of Health Officer as the administrator of the Health Department, charged with the responsibility of taking actions and making determinations necessary to protect the public health and prevent disease, and to carry out the legal function of the Health Department. The Health Officer is appointed by the Board of Commissioners, with concurrence of the Director of the Michigan Department of Community Health and is responsible to them.


The Health Officer must maintain effective relationships with state elected officials and their staffs, with the directors of several state departments and their staffs, with elected officials and their staffs in the several municipalities within Ingham County, and with the leaders in the business, labor and medical communities. These relationships are necessary in order to carry out the legal responsibilities of the Health Officer and the Board of Commissioners to protect and promote public health. These duties are implemented either by the direct provision of services by the local public health and community health operations of the Department, and through the influence of other agencies and individuals in the community.
