Vermont Department of Health

The Department of Health is proud to continue a long tradition of public health service in Vermont. We are the state’s lead agency for public health policy and advocacy.

Public health is the system that works to protect and promote the health of citizens. It is the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging healthy life and promoting physical and mental health. Not only do people with better health habits generally live longer; those years are more likely to be free of disease and disability. Learn more at http://healthvermont.gov.
