What exactly do Public Health official do?

I’m in my first year of college right now, just taking general courses and i’m really interested in pursuing a career in public health. I know the basics about the career and a little about their pay, but could someone tell me some specifics about the career? If you’re a public health official what do you do on like a regular basis? What’s required for that career? (ex. verbal skills, leadership? etc)


  • Public health officials monitor the health system. They make sure people have options. Are you talking about a career in the public health system as a nurse or doctor? They expect you to know certain procedures and medical terms. Ultimately a patient wants somebody who is friendly and resourceful. Its good to have a big vocabulary verbally.

  • walk around do absolutely nothing. put feet up on desk drink Coffee and sh-hot paper airplanes in a basket. or run hide in the john. and walk around with same piece of [paper for 8 hours. we do nothing and walk around get payed for it. feet up on desk, read magazines watch porno on our computers.
