What is Public Health
Organizational Chart 2023


During the Martha Layne Collins administration, health departments were divided up into districts. At that time each district had the responsibility to develop a name for that district.  Dr. W.E. Davis was a great contributor of his time to the counties that were involved in this district, so out of respect and appreciation for his services, the district decided to honor him and name our district WEDCO or W. E. Davis Counties. When the name was submitted however, the state refused to allow the health department to be named after a person, so the meaning of WEDCO became the Wedding of the Counties. So in fact, the name WEDCO has a dual meaning.
