“We are very grateful to the Community Health Center for allowing us to use space in their clinic to be able to begin providing some of our services,” states Kara Ruge, Marketing and Public Information Officer for the Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health. “This is a wonderful example of our community coming together to continue providing services to our residents.”
