On October 26, 1839, the City of Manchester Board of Health was established, along with a system of police, to take measures for protection against fire. An excerpt is below from:
Manchester. A brief record of its past and a picture of its present, Clarke, Maurice D., comp., Clarke, John B. (John Badger), 1820-1891.1
To celebrate the Department’s history and present role as the City’s chief health strategist and neighborhood catalyst, we are pleased to announce the release of two documents – the Ten Commandments of Health from 1922 with a newly created version for 2019; and the Greater Manchester Community Health Needs Assessment.
The Ten Commandments of Health serve as a reminder of how the definition of health has changed over nearly 100 years since the first version was created. The 2019 version provides a greater emphasis on aspects of health that are not only physical, such as disease or illness, but behavioral health as well, such as the importance of getting exercise and eating healthy. One notable similarity is the recommendation for an annual vacation as a measure of wellbeing and mental health. The full stylized version can be found at: www.manchesternh.gov/health
