Almost three dozen Dutchess County workers and officials took part in a lunchtime walk through the City of Poughkeepsie on Tuesday, April 7, kicking off National Public Health Week.

Dr. Kari Reiber, Dutchess County Department of Health Commissioner, began the event by presenting Ozie Williams, a Dutchess County Department of Health public health educator, with the Commissioner’s Award for her more than 25 years of service.
