Welcome to Better Health

The Georgia Department of Public Health is committed to promoting and protecting the health and safety of the people in your community and the state of Georgia.

Gwinnett, Newton and Rockdale County Health Departments continuously monitor the health status of the community to identify health problems. The health departments inform and educate the public on ways to reduce health risks and promote better health through individual contact and media interactions.

We regularly participate in and mobilize community groups to develop policies and action plans to improve the health of the people in the community. The health departments enforce laws, regulations, and ordinances that protect health and ensure safety. Working together to provide these vitally important, “essential” public health services, we can improve the quality of life for everyone in the community and state.
