“I like working for Pinellas County Health Department, because it makes me special knowing that we are helping those people that are the most vulnerable in our community. When my father was diagnosed with lung cancer, he didn’t had health insurance. I took him to St. Pete DOH and he started getting help for his illness. They send him to specialist and after 2 months he was approved for Medicaid and surgery. He didn’t had to do more testing and waist more time since this was already done by DOH. Everyone was very nice and took care of him. This was 8 years ago and my dad is still alive. Also, working for PCHD has great benefits, health insurance, payed holidays but most importantly, stability and security. I know that if I do my job, I will not be unemployed.” – Kristina B., Healthy Families Pinellas Program Supervisor

“I like working for PCHD because the people I work with make coming to work enjoyable. The work my department does makes a difference in the live of children and I feel good about that.” Shawna R., Records Technician Healthy Families
