Environmental Health Team to Meet

Health

The Healthy St. Mary’s Partnership’s Environmental Health Action Team will meet 10 to 11am Wednesday, July 17, 2024.

The team is dedicated to improving environmental health outcomes in the county. Environmental health includes factors in the natural environment such as air quality, water quality, and exposure to toxic substances as well as the built environment, including transportation, access to healthy food, and all of the physical parts of where people live, work, and play.

Meeting minutes can be found here.

In 2021, the team developed a Food Connection Map to help community members find food resources closest to them and address food insecurity. The map was updated in December 2023. Learn more here.
