Meconi, Cabinet Secretary for Delaware Health and Social Services. “When visiting the website users will see that it has been substantially reorganized to provide a simpler navigation and more effective way to access the information and services people need.” The site has also been designed to reflect a Common Look and Feel throughout providing a consistent and user-friendly experience to web surfers no matter which Division they happen to be visiting.

In order to meet the increasing demands of what is being termed the “digital lifestyle” we have also added a multimedia section which provides access to video and audio, slide shows, photo galleries and more.
