Information for You

In Vermont, diabetes is a serious health condition that affects over 40,000 adults, and is one of the leading causes of death resulting from a chronic disease.

Many state, regional, and national GIS resources are available that can assist with public health work:

The Radiological Health Program evaluates and manages the actual and potential public health impacts on Vermonters from activities at the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station, located in the town of Vernon in Windham County.

Dental health is especially important for pregnant women because the bacteria that cause dental decay can be spread from mom to baby unknowingly.

Most people who abuse prescription painkillers get them from friends or family – often straight out of the medicine cabinet. Find out how to properly dispose of prescription medications.

Every other year, since 1993, the Health Department and the Agency of Education sponsor the Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS).
