The Missouri Health Department wins praise from a national magazine for use of the Internet. A report put out by “Governing” magazine, a Washington-based policy and management publication, shows this state’s health department is wisely using the Internet to inform Missourians about local public health issues. MicheleMariani, co-author of the report, says the Missouri Health Department is the best of all state health departments in using the Internet to inform. Mariani says that while the websites of most state health departments offer information, Missouri’s is easy to access.
