Family & Community Health Sciences
Family and Community Health Sciences (FCHS) combines research and practical advice to help Gloucester County residents stay healthy, enjoy life, be active and reduce health care costs. We offer a variety of initiatives, workshops, publications and on-line learning opportunities to help individuals and families make choices that improve health. Research shows that many of our chronic diseases–-obesity, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and some cancers–-could be prevented through healthful eating and regular physical activity.
FCHS outreach focuses on:
- Nutrition, Health and Lifestyle
- Food Safety and Food Allergies
- Environmental Health
- Health Finances
