An open house for retiring Horizon Public Health Administrator Sandy Tubbs will be held 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday at the Douglas County Library in Alexandria. Tubbs started her career in public health working for Stevens Traverse Public Health. She told KMRS that her early years in public health involved providing home care services for the elderly, and then later immunization clinics. But by the time she left that post 15 years later, she was working more with communities and targeted populations of people.
This past October, the Minnesota Department of Health awarded Tubbs its Commissioner’s Award for Distinguished Service in Community Health Services.
