In Washington State, there are
health jurisdictions (LHJ's). The Thurston County
Public Health & Social Services Department is the local
government entity or LHJ serving Thurston County.
Local boards of health are described in Washington State law
as the governing boards for LHJ's across the state.
County Board of Health is comprised of the three
currently elected Thurston County Commissioners. The
Board of Health oversees efforts to improve the public's
health by providing leadership that shapes the Department's
approach to public health policies and programs.
