High blood pressure, stroke and osteoporosis are serious health conditions that can be easily managed by making small lifestyle modifications.  Live Healthy Ocean County! (LHOC) is a community-based chronic disease screening and education program provided by the Ocean County Health Department.   Live Healthy Ocean County! provides Ocean County residents an opportunity to receive screening services, vaccinations, and medication management and education in a “one-stop shop” program where participants can learn the risk factors and prevention techniques of these common, but easily managed health conditions. 

Some of our services include:

  • Blood Pressure Screening
  • Stroke Risk Assessment
  • Osteoporosis Screening
  • Influenza/Pneumonia Vaccination
  • Shingles Vaccination
  • Tdap Vaccination (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis)
  • Medication Management
  • Health Education

These programs are held at public locations throughout the County, on-site at adult community centers, clubhouses, and long-term care facilities, and at the Ocean County Health Department itself to make access to these preventive health services convenient and easily accessible to all of Ocean County’s adult residents.

While the screenings and education are free of charge, vaccinations may include a fee to cover the cost of vaccines.

    For questions or to arrange a program at your facility, please call Clinic Services at 732.341.9700 ext 7604.
