healthy homes

1tractorCreating a healthy home environment is essential to the health and wellbeing of residents in our community. Housing-related hazards can include lead, carbon monoxide, radon, mold, and bacteria that pose harmful health risks to those that live there. Poisoning caused by these hazards can lead to learning disabilities, behavioral problems, breathing difficulties, asthma, allergies, and in some instances, death.

Access Health’s Efforts

  • Encourage and assist local landlords with adoption of healthier living policies and practices
  • Increase awareness of lead, carbon monoxide, and radon poisoning occurrence, symptoms, and prevention
  • Provide information to local health officers

Join us to support healthy homes in our community! For more information or to become involved in local efforts, contact Terry Sherman at 373-6995.
