Charlotte County, FL – October 24, 2022
We are proud to announce that Sheriff Bill Prummell has been recognized by City and State as one of the Top 100 most influential/powerful people in healthcare in Florida. Featured as #69, Sheriff Bill Prummell is listed amongst other influential people with the goal of changing the stigma on mental health and taking a whole new approach to healthcare in Florida.
Last year, Gov. Ron DeSantis tapped Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell to find answers to a pressing question: Do Florida’s current strategies sufficiently address rising rates of anxiety, depression, and drug and alcohol abuse – and if not, what should change? Prummell, who heads the governor’s new commission on mental health and substance abuse, is a three-decade law enforcement veteran and former Drug Free Charlotte County chair. Under his leadership, the commission has consulted forensics, housing and community medicine experts in a quest for fresh perspectives
“It truly is an honor to be named a key player in healthcare by City and State for my work on the Commission on Mental Health and Substance Abuse, but it truly has been a team effort. I will continue the necessary work to develop the most optimal system of care for the people of Florida and I thank Governor DeSantis for giving me this opportunity and a whole new outlook on the mental health crisis,” states Sheriff Bill Prummell.
