In February, Courtney Price, project director of New Jersey Partnership for Healthy Kids-Newark (NJPHK-Newark) will begin a new chapter in her career as a public health analyst with Northrup Grumman, a consulting organization that works with the Center for Disease Control.
Since joining NJPHK-Newark in 2011, Price has worked to promote the importance of healthy living in the city of Newark, NJ. Under her leadership, initiatives such as the Coordinated Approach to Child Health (CATCH) program and ‘Let’s Move! In the Clinic, have been instrumental in building health advocates for physical activity and healthy foods for children. Price has also remained committed to showing local communities the importance of reversing childhood obesity trends by helping to promote the Newark Healthy Corner Store initiative.
“Courtney has been an essential part in shaping the culture of health for Newark, and we thank her for her unwavering commitment,” said Darrin Anderson, deputy director for NJPHK, “We wish her luck and much success in her future endeavors.”SHARE:
