Press play to hear a Public Service Announcement from the Atlantic County Division of Public Health.

Atlantic County is home to a rich diversity of residents who represent many ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

Unfortunately, many of these residents also face social, economic and cultural barriers to having life-long good health.

Hello, I'm Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson.

Racial and ethnic minorities are two to three times more likely to suffer from higher rates of diseases such as diabetes, stroke, cancer and heart disease. But many of these chronic conditions are preventable by having regular health screenings.

We're working to provide health equity to all of our residents.

April is National Minority Health Month. The Atlantic County Division of Public Health offers preventative screenings that are easily accessible with locations in Northfield, Hammonton and Newtonville.

Screenings include blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol.

For more information, call the Atlantic County Division of Public Health at 609-645-5933. That's 609-645-5933.

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