About the Board of Health

The Mansfield Board of Health is governed by a five-member volunteer board appointed by the Select Board and strives to provide fair opportunities for all Mansfield residents to be healthy.  The five foundational areas include: preventing the spread of communicable disease; ensuring food, air, and water quality are safe; supporting maternal, and child health; improving access to clinical care services; and preventing chronic disease and injury. In addition, public health departments provide local protections and services specific to Mansfield’s needs.
