Healthy Homes Course at the Monmouth County Health Dept.

The Health Department staff is a dynamic, multi-disciplinary group, with expertise in areas ranging from hazardous materials response, public health nursing, environmental health, epidemiology and the myriad of public health topics that affect Monmouth County residents. This team is highly-regarded by local health partners as well as state agencies such as the Department of Community Affairs, Department of Environmental Protection Agency, NJ Department of Health and Senior Services, and the Office of the Attorney General.
