Comprised of 13 citizen members, the Advisory Health Council is a group of volunteers dedicated to ensuring that the citizens of East Brunswick enjoy a healthy quality of life in our community.
The Township of East Brunswick contracts the services of the Middlesex County Health Department thru a Public Health Interlocal Service Agreement to provide public health services and programs to the community. The Advisory Health Council supports the work of the Middlesex County Health Department, and may also from time to time make recommendations to the mayor and Township Council.
The Advisory Health Council also develops and promotes health education programs at the local level. The Council is beginning its sixth year of producing “Wellness Spotlight” programming with EBTV. Wellness Workshops are taped once a month and include topics such as Backpack Safety for Kids, Nutrition, Ballroom Dancing, Bicycling, Yoga, the art of Reiki and much more. The council’s Wellness Spotlights support the goals of the ongoing statewide Mayor’s Wellness Campaign, a program dedicated to addressing issues of health care quality in New Jersey.
The Advisory Health Council meets quarterly at the Department of Recreation & Parks Conference Room, 350 Dunhams Corner Road. Special meetings are held as necessary. All meetings are open to the public. The 2013 meeting dates are April 9, Sept. 10, and Dec 3.
