South Dakota Health Department look ahead to the future

PIERRE, S.D.(KELO)- Moving the focus from today’s health problems to those of the future.

That’s part of the strategy of the state health department following months of gathering data.

State Health Secretary Melissa Magstadt says officials met with citizens and health care workers as part of the State Health Assessment.

Now they’re compiling what she calls the State Health Improvement Plan.
