Working with the Albany County Department of Health and the Rensselaer County Department of Health, Cornell Cooperative Extension Albany County has launched the Healthy Neighborhoods Program. This free health and safety program is available to residents in targeted zip codes in Albany (12202, 12206, 12208, 12209, 12210) and Rensselaer (12180, 12182, 12144) counties.
Trained Healthy Neighborhoods Program educators schedule a home visit and identify environmental hazards by asking residents questions from a standardized assessment form. Residents are educated about these concerns and provided referrals and follow up resources. Free cleaning, safety, and health products are also distributed to improve the home living environment.
For more information and to schedule a home visit call 518-765-3521 or register online athttps://pub.cce.cornell.edu/event_registration/main/events.cfm?dept=201.
