Completed by the Public Health Department in 2006, the Deer Lodge County Health Profile illustrates the health of our citizenry. This data has informed the Public Health Department and local health advocacy groups of the health needs present in A-DLC, and has led to the development of health initiatives championed by both the County and community organizations.
