Information for You

If you have prediabetes, you can prevent or delay Type 2 diabetes. Don’t wait until you develop diabetes – take action right away to help prevent prediabetes from becoming Type 2.

From trained medical professionals who respond daily, to citizen volunteers who step up during natural disasters, Vermonters like you make all the difference in our communities' health, safety and preparedness.

You First can pay for services like breast cancer screenings, cervical cancer screenings, heart health screenings and lifestyle programs.

Being at a healthy weight can help lower your chances of developing chronic diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and some cancers.

Act now to prepare for any emergency – flooding, an ice storm, power outage, flu pandemic or disease outbreak. You may need to evacuate or stay where you are to keep safe.

Many Vermonters are affected by falls at some point in their life. People who are 65 years and older are increasingly at risk of falling, and therefore potentially injury. As we age, we are more likely to be injured in a fall.
