County Health Sanitarian Named to State Honor Roll

State Health Commissioner Richard F. Daines congratulates Oswego County's Natalie Roy on being named to the New York State Public Health Works! Honor Roll. Roy is an associate public health sanitarian in the Oswego County Health Department and oversees the environmental health programs.

Natalie Roy, an associate public health sanitarian with the Oswego County Health Department, will be featured on a Web page for outstanding public health employees this week. Roy was recognized by the New York State Association of County Health Officials and named to the Public Health Works! Honor Roll.

She will be profiled on the association's Web site at http://www.health.state.ny.us/prevention/public_health_works/ in March.

“The Public Health Honor Roll recognizes public health workers and their work in protecting the health and safety of the public, and Natalie Roy is well-deserving of this honor,” said County Administrator Philip Church. “She is a very dedicated member of the health department's management team.”

Roy oversees several environmental regulatory programs, including water supply protection, realty subdivision, food protection, swimming pool and bathing beach inspections, temporary residence and mass gathering permits, children's camps, migrant farmworker housing, mobile home parks, and enforcement of the Adolescent Tobacco Use Prevention and Clean Indoor Air acts. She began working for the County Health Department in 1981 as a public health sanitarian.

Roy was nominated by her peers in the County Health Department. The award was presented by state Health Commissioner Richard F. Daines, MD.

“Natalie has a long record of public service, striving to prevent disease and promote good health in Oswego County,” said Church. “We're honored that an employee of Oswego County was chosen.”
