Rock County has a new health officer
Rock County's new Health Officer is Karen Cain.
County Administrator Craig Knutson made the announcement Friday. Cain began working for the health department in 1986. Except for a five year stint as an Assistant Professor of Nursing at Rockford's St. Anthony College, she's been with the health department the entire time.
She has been serving as Acting Health Officer since Dr. Joseph Schurhammer left the position last September.
