Regulation R1-2004

Regulation R1-2004 was read for the second time with a public hearing.  There was no one present for the public hearing.  The third and final reading will be in December.


Southwest Infectious Disease Reporting Brochure

Mrs. Mitrione reported that the Health Department, along with Norwood and Sharonville, had purchased informational brochures, magnets and cards for physicians, EMS and emergency centers in Springdale.


Health Assessment Discussion – Carla Clasen, MPH, RN, Assistant Director, Division of Evaluation and Research, Wright State University


Ms. Clasen lead a discussion on the health assessment.  After a lot of discussion the board picked their top five topics for discussion.  Those are Syndrome X (diabetes), Vascular, Depression, Obesity (including nutrition and fitness) and Cancer.


The board also made changes to the survey that will go out in the residential newsletter in December. 


Animal Nuisance

Mrs. Mitrione said we had spent about $5,000 on the animal nuisance program, $2,000 more than last year.




Flu Vaccine


Ms. Messer brought up the availability of giving vaccinations to non-Springdale residents.  She said the vaccinations come from the State Health Department, who says you must give the vaccinations to anyone who lives in the state of Ohio.  She said there are not a lot of non-Springdale residents who come in but there are some.  The board stated for her to use her judgment.


Ms. Messer stated that she had ordered fifty more doses of flu vaccine from ODH but it has not come in and she’s not sure if she will even get it.  She also said she did not and would not receive the 120 doses that she ordered from Besse.  Ms. Messer said she also has not gotten any pediatric flu vaccine and doesn’t know when that might come in.


The meeting adjourned at 8:45 p.m.


Respectfully submitted,




Cammie Mitrione, RS

Health Commissioner
