The Perth District Health Unit has released its Annual Report.
It highlights the organization’s achievements and activities over the past fiscal year.
They include inspection of 100% of the county’s personal service settings such as spas and salons, and the Rethink your Drinking campaign.
The report also includes a feature on the leading causes of death in Perth County between now and 1973.
That feature shows an aging population and a rise in diabetes.
But it also shows strides have been made in preventing and treating heart disease and stroke.
You can find the entire report online at the PDHU’s website.
