Over the past two years, NJPHK has supported the “Believe in a Healthy Newark” conference. “The conference is designed to help the larger community become aware of and involved in building a culture of health in Newark,” said Dr. Denise Rodgers, Believe in a Healthy Newark grant recipient and Vice Chancellor, Interprofessional Development, Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences. About 400 participants representing community-based organizations, business, academia, health care institutions and the school system attended the event in 2018.
NJPHK’s Dr. Darrin Anderson served on the steering committee and, in the past, moderated panel discussions on leveraging data and how to collectively make an impact in the community.
The 2019 Believe in a Healthy Newark Conference will be held on September 26. For more information, contact Mary Long at Healthynewark@gmail.comSHARE:
