Elkins-Randolph Health Department honored by Youth Health Service

ELKINS — Youth Health Service presented its annual Heart of Giving Award to the Elkins-Randolph County Health Department Thursday.

Each year Youth Health chooses a local person or organization to honor that has contributed in some way to the mission and vision that Youth Health has for the community, and in 2021 the Elkins-Randolph Health Department excelled in that capacity, officials said.

“We’ve relied heavily on the health department the past two years,” Youth Health Executive Director Tammie Rizzio told The Inter-Mountain Thursday. “They have provided us with guidance on how to proceed with COVID precautions safely in order for us to be able to continue to do what we do.”
