UCare honors county health department

The Public Health Department team in Dakota County was recognized April 16 for its outstanding performance and support of UCare’s Seats, Education, and Travel Safety (SEATS) program.

Bonnie Brueshoff, Public Health director, Dakota County Public Health, and staff received an appreciation certificate from UCare at the April 16 Community Services Committee of the Dakota County Board.

UCare’s SEATS Program provides car seats and safety education at no charge to eligible UCare members who are pregnant or children up to age 8. The program partners with more than 75 public health agencies and organizations in Minnesota to both dispense three types of seats and provide car seat installation education from a nationally certified Child Passenger Safety technician.
