|Reports & Publications - Annual Report 2000
New Health Unit Website -
It all began back at the beginning of April 2000 when the Health Unit decided to hire a Website Coordinator. One of the challenges of developing the Website and Intranet sites was the formatting/designing of the Health Status 2000 report which included approximately 1000 separate files. By June 2000, the Health Unit's Website went online with the Health Status 2000 report. This Report contained an enormous amount of information on the health status of the citizens of Leeds, Grenville and Lanark counties. The web was a perfect vehicle to use to publish this report and copies were provided on CD-ROM for those without an internet connection. When the Health Status 2000 report project moved to completion, the planning continued for the Health Unit's main Website. The navigation and structure was developed and the content for the pages was being compiled and formatted. By the end of September, the Website was ready to go. It has grown enormously to date and is constantly being developed, updated and improved with more information added daily. A Physician's Resource section is presently being developed and soon we will develop a Teacher's Resource section. Along with these developments comes the creation of a master public school calendar for all of Leeds, Grenville and Lanark which will be piloted internally then posted externally for all to view near April 2002. This calendar, the first of it's kind for the Health Unit and the schools, will incorporate all programs and services presently delivered into the school system for reference and coordination. If there is information regarding Health Unit programs and services that you do not find on the site and you believe that information would be beneficial to you or others please email or call us so that we can respond to your needs. We want this to be your health information site.
