    A key part of that was to educate the public on health issues. And to alert the public that the health department was more than a place for those needing to get a shot.

    That mission is probably a big part of Bullitt County’s high marks in the 2013 Kentucky KIDS COUNT survey.

    In the area of health, Bullitt County ranked 12th out of 120 counties.
