Believe in a Healthy Newark Initiative
Believe in a Healthy Newark is one of the Culture of Health Initiatives being funded by RWJF New Jersey Health Initiatives. We have been funded since 2015 for four years and have developed three areas of focus represented by Impact Teams. The three focus areas are:
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) – focusing on educating public school teachers, health care providers for children, and the overall community about the adverse impact of ACE’s on children and adults.
Food and Fitness – focusing on improving access to food and safe spaces for exercise.
Healthy Homes – focusing on reducing exposure to environmental triggers to asthma and to lead.
