Working to make SOMERSET the HEALTHIEST County in New Jersey.

Contact Us EVENTS


According to the Centers for Disease Control, healthy communities are designed and built to improve the quality of life for all people who live, work, worship, learn, and play within their borders — where every person is free to make choices amid a variety of healthy, available, accessible, and affordable options.

Healthier Somerset’s mission is to work collaboratively to improve the health and well-being of all who live and work in Somerset County. Because health has a direct bearing upon our physical, emotional, and economic well-being, Healthier Somerset advocates for public policy that impacts both health and economic development with elected and appointed officials at the municipal and county levels.

Somerset County is home to more than 50 life sciences companies, and almost one third of the county’s largest employers are related to life sciences.  With this focus on health and wellness in the county, Healthier Somerset is well positioned to bring participants from all sectors of the economy together to work collaboratively to improve our physical and economic health.
