Hello, I'm Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson.

The Atlantic County Division of Public Health has a wealth of resources to keep you safe and healthy this spring.

Why not kick-start your health with a free health screening? The Division of Public Health offers screenings for men and women at no charge.

Are your children on schedule with their immunizations? Our Public Health Nurses can get your family on the right track.

Need help with nutritional guidelines or assistance with a family emergency preparedness plan? Atlantic County Health Educators offer presentations to help you weather the unexpected.

The County's Substance Abuse Services Unit offers education on alcohol related illnesses as well as free confidential screenings, and our environmental health unit ensures that the water you drink and the food you eat meets the state sanitary code of inspection.

We're working to make Atlantic County the healthiest in the state.

For more information, contact the Atlantic County Division of Public Health at 645-5935, that's 645-5935 or visit the county Web site at www.aclink.org.

This is Denny Levinson for the Atlantic County Division of Public Health: working for healthy people in healthy communities.
