The Madison Health Department along with the Water Pollution Control Authority, Office of Emergency Management, Youth and Family Services, Senior Services, and Visiting Nurse Association, work together to prevent illness and promote health and safety in the Town of Madison.
The public health services provided ensure that we have water that is safe to drink, sewage systems to protect our community from diseases, clean restaurants to protect us from food-borne illnesses, clean and safe schools, and immunizations to prevent epidemics and preparation against various potential natural and man-made disasters.
This network of people, working together, forms a tailored system that serves the citizens of Madison in an effective and efficient way.
Free Blood Pressure Screenings
The Madison Health Department in conjunction with the American Heart Association is encouraging residents to perform the Check It! Challenge. It is a 4-month long initiative for individuals to know their blood pressure numbers. To get it started we are offering free blood pressures on Thursday, Feb 1st from 10:00 AM – 2:00PM and on Wednesday, Feb 14th from 2:00 PM – 6:00PM at the Madison Town Campus. You may have high blood pressure and not even know it, that is why getting regular blood pressure screening is important.
