Description

The mission of the New Jersey Environmental Health Association is to support the professional growth of environmental health specialists, provide a unified and informed voice in the development of public health practice and policy, and enhance the ability of members to aptly promote environmental and public health locally, regionally and globally.

The New Jersey Environmental Health Association, the recognized state affiliate of the National Environmental Health Association since 1963, has been aiding the state's environmental health professionals since 1954.

Though organized years prior to its formal inception, the Association was incorporated as the New Jersey Association of Sanitarians on October 19, 1966. The Association had its name changed to the New Jersey Environmental Health Association on July 25, 1973.

The NJEHA's current Mission Statement is true to that which appears on the original 1966 certificate of incorporation, emphasizing professional growth, high standards of performance and conduct, and cooperation in an effort to improve public health for New Jersey's residents.
