Impact Teams

Believe in a Healthy Newark Initiative

Believe in a Healthy Newark is one of the Culture of Health Initiatives funded by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and 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:

  1. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) – focusing on educating public school teachers, health care providers, and the overall community about the impact of ACE’s on children and adults.

  2. Food and Fitness – focusing on improving access to food and safe spaces for physical activity.

  3. Healthy Homes – focusing on reducing exposure to environmental triggers specifically asthma and lead.
