Environmental Health Team to Meet

Environmental Health Action Team

The Healthy St. Mary’s Partnership’s Environmental Health Action Team will meet 10 to noon Wednesday, May 18. The meeting will include a Bike Share Design Thinking Activity.

Read the minutes from the April 2022 meeting here.

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.

In 2021, the team developed a Food Connection Map to help community members find food resources closest to them and address food insecurity. Learn more here.

The Healthy St. Mary’s Partnership is a community-driven coalition of partners working together to improve health in St. Mary’s County. The coalition mobilizes members through these action teams to address the priority health issues in the county.

Get involved. New members are always welcome to join the team. To be notified of upcoming events and meetings, sign up for membership in the Healthy St. Mary’s Partnership and indicate “Environmental Health” as your interest.
