The Citrus County Health Department is pleased to announce the arrival of Lisa McCafferty, R.S., R.E.H.S., MPH as the new Health Officer/Agency Administrator for the Citrus County Health Department. The appointment was made by the State Surgeon General with the concurrence of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners. Having served as Public Health Officer/Director of the Ionia County Public Health Department since 2002, she is excited about continuing the next phase of her Public Health career here in Citrus County, Florida. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and has a Master’s Public Health, with a concentration in Environmental Sciences, from the University of Michigan, as well as a Certificate in Epidemiology. Having worked in both the public and private sectors, Ms. McCafferty brings a wealth of Public Health leadership experience.

“After two days in a car, with a Pembroke Welsh Corgi who decided that he was navigator as well as driver …. we arrived!
A rather poetic trip as it provided time to transition from my decades long tenure in the northern climes to this new phase of my Public Health career here in sunny Florida. I look forward to serving the public and the staff here in Citrus County, and collaborating with all our community partners, as we pursue our Public Health initiatives.”
