Mission Statement

The mission of the Radnor Township Board of Health is to advise the Board of Commissioners and the Department of Community Development on matters of public health, and to furnish science-based recommendations on public health policy. The board also serves the community by providing prevention-oriented programs that promote and protect the health of all Township citizens and a forum for Township residents to voice their questions and concerns. The Township’s health officer acts as a liaison between the Board and the Township administration.

Student Interns

The Radnor Township Board of Health collaborates with area youth in offering the opportunity for up to 2 high school students to serve as "Interns" for the Radnor Township Board of Health each year. It is a "win-win" as the Board has the input and service from the students, and the students are exposed to the vast array of issues in public health. The interns are asked for their input on issues being discussed particularly in regard to teen health issues, teen attitudes, and what is covered in their school health education classes.

A variety of issues are discussed by the Board of Health. Student Interns recently have been exposed to presentations and discussion at Board of Health meetings about community gardens, possible regulation of chickens in the Township, laundry "pod" poisonings, e-cigarette health issues and school regulations, women's cardiac health, Lyme disease, weed control, restaurant sanitation reports becoming available online, rabies issues, bee colony collapse, "White Nose Syndrome" in bats, teen suicide, texting while driving, Human Papillomavirus (HPV) research and vaccines, influenza, emergency preparedness and response, and many other issues.

Student Interns are also asked to pick a project in addition to taking minutes of the monthly Board of Health meetings. This year's student intern project was a presentation on adolescent stress at Radnor."
