County and Various Community Health Officials Greet the Lees

Just last month, Lee was hired as Prowers County Public Health and Environment Director, replacing Jackie Brown who retired from that position after more than twenty years of service.  Lee’s previous professional health experience includes director for clinical research for a group of medical doctors in Denver and prior to that in California as a community assessment director.  Lee has a Masters degree in the Public Health field.   His wife, Charlene, is a teacher in the K-12 grade system.  They have three children ages, 14, 11 and 9. 

Like any family making a transition from one new home to another, the Lee’s are becoming acclimated to life in Prowers County and beginning their search for a new residence.  This past October, while meeting with the county commissioners and health department staff, Lee commented that he wants to continue his involvement with community outreach programs.  Lee said he is very community event oriented, working with health related groups such as Relay for Life, various sports activities and events, plus annual cultural events.  As in the past, Lee said he’d be in touch with the sheriff and police departments as well as parks and recreation and local elected officials to get an assessment of the community and then start to work on formulating some health oriented goals following his orientation.
