During the Healthy Communities of Clinton County and Clinton County Healthy Department’s joint open house and ribbon-cutting event on August 23, the healthy department’s immunization clinic was dedicated to Dr. Stephen Tharp, Clinton County’s health officer. It is now known as the Dr. Stephen D. Tharp Immunization Clinic.
“I didn’t know that they were planning on doing anything like that,” Dr. Tharp said. “Then, just before a story came out, they did let me know so I wouldn’t be too surprised when we had the opening. I very much appreciate the recognition, but I really think that it is the staff that makes that clinic a smoothly running, wonderful addition to what we have. I could have not gotten anything done without them working as hard as they do. I am extremely proud of what our department has done and what they continue to do.”
