Information for You

Schools and their communities play a key role in helping to establish lifelong healthy behaviors, and thereby improving health outcomes for Vermont's school-aged children.

Programs and services that help communities become as healthy and involved as they can be are a key part of alcohol and drug use prevention in Vermont.

We publish quarterly newsletters, several toolkits, data briefs, and other resources on physical activity, nutrition and obesity. 

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

Tobacco control is the work of many in Vermont. Best practice calls for state and local organizations to work together to reduce tobacco use, promote tobacco-free policies and support those who want to quit.

Vermont is ranked as one of the healthiest states in the nation – but we need continous improvement to ensure that all Vermonters have equal opportunity for good health.
