Action Teams

As the Healthy St. Mary’s Partnership moves into the New Year it is excited to announce four new action teams — the Environmental Health Action Team, the Behavioral Health Action Team, the Chronic Disease Action Team, and the Violence, Injury, and Trauma Action Team.

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.

The Environmental Health Action Team of the Healthy St. Mary’s Partnership 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.
