Health Education

Healthy Homes Course at the Monmouth County Health Dept.

The Health Department staff is a dynamic, multi-disciplinary group, with expertise in areas ranging from hazardous materials response, public health nursing, environmental health, epidemiology and the myriad of public health topics that affect Monmouth County residents. This team is highly-regarded by local health partners as well as state agencies such as the Department of Community Affairs, Department of Environmental Protection Agency, NJ Department of Health and Senior Services, and the Office of the Attorney General. In addition to receiving grant funds from each agency, staff is often invited to participate on state level task forces and speak at statewide conferences.  As a service to our member municipalities, we are pleased to provide a health department speakers bureau providing education sessions on the following topics:
