Dr. Bencie will speak on The Local Public Health Response to the Covid-19 Pandemic
 
For the past two years, Dr. Jennifer Bencie and her team at the Florida Department of Health-Manatee have responded to the pandemic at the county level.  Using the Incident Command Structure (ICS) and coordinating with many community partners, the Health Department has lead the effort to mitigate this virus on our coast.  

 

Dr. Bencie, who is the County Health Officer, will discuss the many roles of public health during this crisis, from disease investigation to messaging about the importance of prevention. She will also talk about the other services that continue to be provided at the Health Department, even during a public health emergency.
