“I’m very proud of the work that Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County does within our county,” Gross says. We provide leadership in many areas and help identify the greatest public health challenges, and then we work within our public health system to strategically meet those needs and also promote healthier lifestyles.”

Health Commissioner Gross says he’s enjoyed his 37 years of public service, but is ready to “move forward to the next stage” in his life.

The Board of Health has announced that they have begun the search for the next health commissioner, focusing on a five-state area using newspapers and numerous professional websites.
