Somerset is proud to be certified to participate in the Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Cities and Towns Program. The HEAL Program is an initiative designed to help cities and towns stem the obesity epidemic by supporting healthy life choices. The Maryland Municipal League is encouraging all its members to become part of the HEAL Campaign. Somerset supports healthy food choices at all its sponsored events and in the workplace, and is committed to encouraging healthy living opportunities.
Additionally, Somerset has a Wellness Group designed to build community around common health and lifestyle topics. Activities are open to all residents and include regularly scheduled walking groups, water aerobics, and a speaker series on issues of interest to the community.
