Lora Whalen,




In Her Own Words

"Panhandle Health District is the foundation of the local public health system in the five northern counties of Idaho.  The three words that best describe what we do are: Prevent, Promote, Protect.  These three words drive our public health mission of:

  • Preventing Disease, Disability, and Premature Death;
  • Promoting Healthy Lifestyles; and
  • Protecting and Promoting the Health and Quality of the Environment.

Panhandle Health District exists for the common good of all people in Northern Idaho.  Please browse through our website to see all the public health services we offer to keep our communities healthy. 

Our dedicated staff and community partners are committed to preventive health.  My goal as Director is to assure that we at Panhandle Health District provide leadership in the promotion of social, economic, and environmental conditions that improve health and well-being and prevent illness, disease and injury.  I am so very proud to be a part of Panhandle Health District"
