Information for You

Outdoor air can contain pollutants. Air pollution has been linked to specific health problems—such as asthma, heart disease, and lung cancer.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, is a large group of lung diseases characterized by airflow obstruction. COPD is often associated with symptoms related to difficulty breathing, but can be present without symptoms.

Once cancer is diagnosed, prompt and thorough medical treatment and complementary care are essential to prolonging a patient’s life, decreasing side effects and improving quality of life.

We want as many Vermonters as possible to have dental care. Use these searchable directories to find a dental practice in Vermont and dental health insurance or other health coverage.

Vermont law allows families to care for their own dead. This includes transporting the deceased, burial on private property and cremation.
