FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
August 21, 2009
LAS VEGAS – The Southern Nevada Health District today launched its redesigned website with new features that allow users to maneuver around the site with ease. The address remains www.SouthernNevadaHealthDistrict.org; however, visitors will be able to search for programs and information without having to know the organizational structure of the health district. The Southern Nevada Health District is asking users to take a short survey to offer their opinions about the site’s new design and features as well as make suggestions to further improve it. For more information, visit the www.SouthernNevadaHealthDistrict.org.
The new home page includes an area for popular searches and a “how do I?” section to help users find the information they need. “Hot topics” is another new feature that links users to information highlighted by the health district, such as H1N1 influenza or other topics featured in the news.
In addition, the site includes new, online forms including a foodborne illness complaint form, a physicians’ disease reporting form, data information request and public records request form, an HIV/AIDS outreach and education request form, and a health care professionals section.
The Southern Nevada Health District’s site offers expanded information about several programs, including childhood lead poisoning prevention, the nurse/family partnership program, and a reorganization of the environmental health division’s permits and regulations sections.
