Public Health Nurse
The Hopewell Township Public Health Nurse provides community health services by integrating a clinical understanding of health & wellness with epidemiological methods to implement an appropriate public health response. Core activities include following-up on communicable disease reports, ensuring access to vaccinations, and conducting immunization audits at schools and childcare centers. Program goals include prevention of illness, injury or disability, and advancing the health of the population in partnership with the community.
