State declares health and human services worker day

Cook County, along with communities across the State, will be recognizing County, Tribal, and State Health and Human Services Worker Day in Minnesota on Wednesday, December 14, following a proclamation by Gov. Mark Dayton.

Cook County employs 22 people in the Public Health & Human Services Department who deliver a number of critical services, including: social services, chemical dependency and treatment options, childcare, financial services, health care programs and disease control and prevention.

Approximately one in five citizens in Cook County benefit from the services of the Public Health and Human Services Department.
