KU Graduate and Former Center Colleague Chuck Sepers Speaks about Serving as Appleton, Wisconsin's New Health Officer During the Pandemic

When the city council voted in January to hire Chuck Sepers as Appleton's new health officer, the city was experiencing its worst COVID-19 surge yet.

Sepers comes to Appleton from Nebraska, where he served as chief public health officer for a group of counties in the east central part of the state. Prior to that, he led projects to reduce childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes at the Center for Community Health and Development at the University of Kansas.

He spoke with The Post-Crescent about where he thinks public health in Appleton is headed for the remainder of the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
