Minneapolis Health Department
The Minneapolis Health Department provides a diverse range of services as it carries out its mission to improve the quality of life for all people in the city by protecting the environment, preventing disease and injury, promoting healthy behaviors, and creating a city that is a healthy place to live, work, and play.
