Free Condoms

Consistent and correct use of condoms reduces the risk of STDs and HIV transmission. Your personal supply of free condoms are available at 27 locations throughout Vermont.

Worksite Wellness is Good for Business

Businesses play an important role in promoting health and reducing the risk of chronic disease. Over 60 percent of Vermont adults employed outside the home are either overweight or obese, and over half have at least one chronic condition. Chronic disease places a significant financial burden on employers in health care costs and lost productivity. Worksite wellness programs help improve the bottom line.
