Who We Are



The Upper Missouri District Health Unit (UMDHU) was founded and began offering sanitation and nursing services in Divide, McKenzie and Williams Counties in 1947. It was the third public health unit formed in the state. Mountrail County joined the health unit in 1949. The central office is located in Williston; satellite offices are maintained in Crosby, Stanley and Watford City (all are county seats).

Tick and mosquito surveillance
NDDoH Using iNaturalist Application to Aid in Summer Tick and Mosquito Surveillance The NDDoH is hoping to involve the general public in their Tick and Mosquito Surveillance Programs this year. Two projects, “Ticks in North Dakota” and “Mosquitoes in North Dakota,” have been created in iNaturalist to record observations of ticks and mosquitoes seen within our state. iNaturalist, which can be found at iNaturalist.org, is a website that allows users to document and share observations of organisms they’ve found. Observations should include variables such as date, time and geographic location, as well as uploaded photographs of the organism. Laboratorians at the NDDoH will identify the tick and mosquito species in the pictures that are submitted. iNaturalist mobile apps are also available for Android and Apple devices. For more information, please contact Laura Cronquist at lcronquist@nd.gov or 701.328.2694.
