Celebrating Milwaukee Health Department's 150th Anniversary
What's the best way to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Milwaukee Health Department? How about showing off one of its success stories. Little Rayina is just 4-weeks-old and her family is supported by the health department's award-winning home visiting program.
A kickoff was held at City Hall for the department's anniversary today. While they celebrated the accomplishments of the past, officials also looked ahead to a new community-generated health initiative. They call it \"Milwaukee Elevate.\"
The Milwaukee Health department was first established on this day in 1867.
