In 1883 the citizens of Missouri realized that the state could not prosper if the health of its residents was not protected. Epidemics of smallpox, typhoid and cholera severely threatened the health and welfare of Missourians. Concerned physicians led a citizens' campaign to establish a state agency responsible for the promotion of the people's health and the prevention of disease. On March 29, 1883, the Missouri Legislature responded by creating a State Board of Health.
Their mission is to be the leader in promoting, protecting and partnering for health.
