Jean Schultz’s family has a love for nature. Growing up, she spent her summers in Northern Wisconsin with her grandparents learning to appreciate and protect the wonders of nature. This love of nature led Jean into a career of environmental protection. Over time this love grew to protect environmental and public health. As she learned about environmental contamination from human activities, Jean also learned about health impacts from the built environment. This knowledge led her into a career in Public Health where she is currently the Director/Health Officer for Polk County, Wisconsin. She has witnessed firsthand how economic and social factors influence people’s living and working conditions. Jean believes that health inequalities can be prevented and reversed. No person’s health should be negatively impacted because of their surrounding build environment. Utilizing a systems thinking approach can reduce health inequities to improve human and environmental health now and for future generations.
