Mary Korsmo
ND State Association of City and County Health Officials - Executive Director
Montana born and Ohio raised, Mary has been calling Bismarck/Burleigh County home for good long time now, and we're happy to have her here at NDACo again. "Again" because she worked here several years - and 2 girls/2boys - ago. She advocates for the interests of local health officials during the legislative session and fills the role of Exec. Director for NDSACCHO.
