The New Hampshire Health Officers Association is a Professional Organization of
Local Health Officials Serving All of New Hampshire
Members play a vital role in the organization through their work on various committees and commission groups. Health Officer representation is important to widen our visibility and broaden our knowledge. Some of the Board's goals in 2016 are to review the Health Officer's Manual, keep informed of any legislation which may affect health officers, and continue our involvement with various committees. The board will update the website with information as it becomes available.
