About Us

The Lake Cumberland District Health Department focuses on public and preventative health. We do so by offering on-site clinics, off-site programs and by engaging our communities to adopt health-focused policies and initiatives.  Our mission is to, “…prevent illness and injury, promote good health practices and assure a safe environment.”  While pursuing our mission, we aspire toward excellence by endeavoring to practice according to the most contemporary and cutting edge public health practice models and standards.

Historic Standards

Historically, as we have worked with our community partners to improve health via policy development and partnerships, our Community Health Improvement Plans reflect that we have looked to the Healthy People 2030 and Surgeon General’s Priorities to set health targets and to identify nationally recommended strategies.
