Local and State Public Health Laboratories protect our communities by monitoring the environments in which we live, work and play.
Services provided by Public Health Laboratories are broad, diverse and based on the needs of the populations they serve.
We identify and control emerging infectious diseases and outbreaks.
We prevent disease and disability in vulnerable populations by identifying at-risk infants and women.
We assure safe food and water.
We prepare for and respond to local, state, and national emergencies such as bioterrorism and natural disasters.
We stand at the interface of public health programs and the medical care community.
