Health-care spotlight

August 14, 2006

Lori Lushbaugh, a registered nurse who is in charge of Washington County Health Department's communicable disease program, is Washington County Health Department's Employee of the Month for July.

She has worked with the health department since 1999. She began with the Healthy Start program working with women who have pregnancies at risk for unfavorable outcomes. She subsequently transferred to the communicable disease program and, in 2005, became the program supervisor. In that capacity she is responsible for the oversight of all surveillance and investigation of reportable diseases and the coordination and conduct of disease outbreak control activities.

Her selection reflects a recognition of not only her knowledge and attention to detail, but also her ability to calmly deal with simultaneous investigations.
