Description

Building a Culture of Health in New Jersey means creating changes that will surround kids and families in every community with opportunities to make healthy choices. We will discuss how health is linked to health care; how policy and environment changes can better support children, family and community life; how equity is connected to opportunity; and how private and public decision-making impacts health. This conference will explore how New Jersey must balance the cost, benefits and effectiveness of treatment and prevention to improve the health of all residents.

Objectives
  • Bring together diverse stakeholders to share knowledge, leverage partnerships and identify collective solutions in building a Culture of Health.
  • Discover new or existing cross-sector collaborations between healthcare and community prevention that are making the health of their community a priority.
  • Share and discuss emerging research, best practices, community-based efforts and effective policy strategies that increase access to healthy foods and physical activity for children and their families to achieve a healthy weight.
  • Elevate evidence and practice-based strategies that focus on equity and reducing inequities in high-risk, low income communities in New Jersey.
  • Recognize opportunities and policies that leverage public and private resources to foster healthy communities and lifestyles in early childcare and education.
