Healthy Communities

Atlantic Health System's "Healthy Communities Initiative" is a program
designed to improve the health and wellness of our communities by
working together with various partners to promote disease prevention and control, health education, and environmental changes. The Healthy Communities Initiative supports the elimination of health disparities as part of its disease prevention and health education efforts. Health disparities, or inequalities, are types of unjust health differences linked to social, economic, or environmental disadvantages that adversely affect groups of people.

The Healthy Communities approach to improving health in underserved communities involves multi-level strategies. Firstly, culturally-specific health outreach provides health education and community-based care coordination to individuals and families in vulnerable communities. This includes a variety of preventative services, such as screenings, health awareness programs, and nutrition education. These screenings and programs are tailored to the specific health issues of the community as addressed by our partnering organizations.

Secondly, the initiative works to drive environmental and policy change through grants. In partnership with the State Department of Health and the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance, Healthy Communities provides grants to neighborhood-based organizations that are working to sustain healthier environments at both the policy and ground levels. These partnerships are supported by the Atlantic Center for Population Health Sciences.
