Somerset Public Health: Our Mission and Purpose - Our goal is to make Somerset County a healthier place to live and work for the families we serve. We strive to make this happen by: Improving nutrition, Increasing physical activity, Stopping tobacco use, Preventing drug abuse, Promoting the responsible use of alcohol, and Encouraging health self-advocacy and self-management. To do all of this, we need your help. We work with community members, schools, work places, child care centers, service groups, and other community groups to make the places we visit everyday healthier. If you want to be involved in this work please call or join our mailing list.
