Atlantic Health System's Community Health departments improve the health and well-being of our communities by preventing disease, educating the population and changing living conditions for the better.
We partner with local organizations to provide preventative health services to individuals and families in vulnerable communities. This may include screenings, health awareness programs and nutrition education – all of which are tailored to the culturally-specific health issues affecting the population.
The NJ Healthy Communities Network is a partnership between the State Department of Health, NJ Partnership for Healthy Kids, the Partners for Health Foundation and the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance. We work with this organization to provide grants to neighborhood-based groups, so they can offer more opportunities for people to eat healthier and be more active.
