Public Health

Nicollet County Public Health works to improve the health of all county residents by addressing the social and environmental factors that impact their health and offering programs and services that help them to be healthy. 
Nicollet County public health programs and services include:

Adult Community Health Survey

A limited number of randomly selected Nicollet County addresses will soon receive a postcard invitation to complete our anonymous online survey. We want to hear from you! The survey is one important way we are able to hear directly from residents about conditions that influence the health and quality of life of our community. Results are shared with community partners, used to inform our Community Health Assessment, and direct ongoing programmatic work.
