Our staff are based in your community, and we work to protect the health and wellbeing of everyone in the towns we serve.  We work in schools, at worksites, with your town offices, partner groups, and we serve individuals and families right in our office. We help pregnant women, new mothers and young children to eat well and learn about nutrition, we provide oral health care and immunizations and we support programs and policies that help all people form healthy habits.  We invite you to learn about the many ways we can help you, your family and your community be healthy.
