Letter of the Week: Kansas should invest in public health

Sept. 19, 2016: It happens every day. Public-health workers protect the health of people and the communities where we live, learn, work and play. Improving access to vaccines, planning for public health emergencies, preventing infectious disease and lead poisoning and developing programs that ensure easy access to healthy food and physical activity contribute to better health for us all.
