Diane Ward

Ms. Diane Ward started in the Certified Home Health Agency, and found her current specialization in Injury Prevention, Immunizations, and Communicable Disease Investigation.

When the meningococcal meningitis and pertussis affected the County, Ms. Ward showed leadership in contact investigation and public education. She also was part of the team who addresses the unmet needs of migrant workers and Amish religious communities. When the disasters and flooding disabled the county, she volunteered to open and optimize an emergency shelter, defining and assuring medical-psycho-social needs fulfillment. Ms. Ward has also been an essential part of developing partnerships among Public Health, Emergency, and Fire Services.
