MEDIA RELEASE: Tioga County Public Health 2023 Employee of the Fourth Quarter

Last Updated: 1/26/2024

Congratulations to Sue Medina for being named the 2023 Employee of the Fourth Quarter for Tioga County Public Health!

Sue rejoined our department in May of 2023 as Deputy Public Health Director. She hit the ground running and played a vital role in our department’s goal of revamping existing programs and policies, as well as reintroducing services, such as Welcome Baby Outreach, that we haven’t offered since before the COVID-19 pandemic. Sue has helped streamline and improve how we do many different things, making us all more efficient.

As Deputy Public Health Director, Sue oversees and offers support on a wide variety of programs from health education to lead poisoning prevention and emergency preparedness. Despite her busy schedule, Sue is always available to meet with her staff and provide support on all their different projects. Sue uplifts others by sharing staff accomplishments in weekly emails to the department. On top of everything else that she does, Sue recently completed her master’s in public health. She is a great role model, and even better coworker!

Outside of work, Sue enjoys camping and spending time with her family (including her dogs and cats!).
