The Central Connecticut Health District (CCHD), serving the towns of Berlin, Newington, Rocky Hill and Wethersfield is now on Facebook! 

The Central Connecticut Health District provides a range of public health services aimed at assessing the health of people in its member towns and working with those communities to improve the public’s health.  The emphasis of the public health field is on the prevention of disease, the promotion of health and the protection of the community, otherwise known as “Prevent, Promote, Protect”

Ø  Prevent: Emergency preparedness assists by preventing communicable diseases through immunizations and other measures, while preparing for and responding to public health emergencies.  Our staff and volunteers are dedicated to assisting individuals within our community in preparation of a public health emergency and the flu clinics are one of many ways you can help. 

Ø  Promote: Community health focuses on promoting healthy behaviors and preventing disease and injuries, through the use of grant funding to implement programs that assist individuals and families through education and support. 

Ø  Protect: Environmental health protects the public by ensuring access to safe food, air and water, as well as investigating the outbreak of disease in the community.
