Genesee County Health Department Seeks Help at STD Clinic


With some of the highest STD rates in the state of Michigan, Genesee County Health Department Health Officer Mark Valacak is petitioning the board of commissioners to re-establish the county’s public health nurse position to assist with providing services. The county currently enlists the aid of a part-time temporary nurse to offer testing and treatment services for STDs and HIV on a limited basis. Commissioners could give initial approval to Valacak’s request on May 15.
