MISSION
 
Our mission is to properly and efficiently execute measures intended to mitigate, prepare for, and respond to health risks resulting from potential environmental exposures, including communicable diseases and food/water-borne illnesses.

SERVICES
 
Services include, but are not limited to, Disease Intervention and Behavioral Modification Counseling, Environmental Health (EH), Immunizations Issuance, and Immunizations Clinic.  
SERVICE
GUIDANCE
Environmental Health
 
Focuses primarily on minimizing illness through enforcement of sanitation standards, including the inspection of food and water establishments, child care centers, gymnasium and pool facilities, barber shops, and other places where diseases may be spread. 
For temporary food events such as bake sales and/or fund raising events that involve food, a Temporary Food Event Coordinator's Application or DD 2795 needs to be filled out by the event coordinator and approved by the Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune Preventive Medicine Department.  All temporary food events are handled case by case.  It is highly recommended that the event coordinator email Preventive Medicine to see specific guidelines for the event at usn.lejeune.navhospclnc.list.nmccl-prevmed@mail.mil.
Failure to do so could delay the review /approval process.  Requests will be approved within 72 hours of receipt.
Disease Intervention
Focuses on how to prevent the spread of disease and associated complications through surveillance activities, treatment, and counseling activities.
Immunizations
Immunization issuance is handled by the Immunizations Division at BLDG 65, which is responsible for the ordering, proper storage and handling, and distribution of vaccines.
