Director Paul Pettit, MSL, CPH

The Genesee and Orleans County Health Departments, also known as GO Health, work every day to ensure the safety of the water we drink, the food we eat, and the air we breathe. Members of a community may not always see the work done by local health departments, but people live healthier lives and are safer because of the work of local health departments. 

GO Health helps create and maintain conditions in communities that support healthier choices in areas such as diet, exercise, and tobacco. They lead efforts that prevent and reduce the effects of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and cancer. They detect and stop outbreaks of diseases like measles, tuberculosis, and foodborne illnesses. They protect children and adults from infectious diseases through immunization. GO Health also conducts programs that are shown to effectively make communities healthier. 


Everyone in our region can achieve an optimal and equitable level of health and well-being.
