Welcome to the UNCAS Health District your local health department. The Uncas Health District is an unaffiliated, unincorporated non-profit agency operating under Connecticut General Statutes. The agency’s mission is to promote and protect the public’s health in order to prevent illness, death and disability among its residents.  The Board of Directors is comprised of 15 non-compensated members appointed by each of the member municipalities. The number of Board Members is based upon the municipality's population with one board member for every 10,000 population or part thereof. They represent the needs and interests of their member municipalities, serving staggered 3-year terms and can be reappointed.

UHD now serves as the local health department for ten municipalities in Eastern Connecticut: Bozrah, Franklin, Griswold, Lebanon, Lisbon, Montville, Norwich, Salem, Sprague, and Voluntown, Connecticut. The services provided by the UHD include environmental health inspections, health education, public health preparedness planning, and public health nursing.
