In the Newport Office of Local Health, we aspire to prevent chronic diseases by strengthening communities in our region. Through collaboration with partners, we promote the highest level of health for all people, working to eliminate differences in health for different groups of people.
Our vision is that all Vermonters will live in communities that enable them to make healthy food choices and lead physically active lives. We support statewide partners working together to encourage lifelong healthy eating and physical activity by:
Developing community partnerships
Planning, implementing and evaluating targeted interventions
Creating policy and environmental changes
