Housing is health and the pandemic has made the racial and economic gaps as well as the policies that connect these basic human needs unmistakable. Join us for this year's virtual Summit for thoughtful discussion, information and resources to help create healthy NJ homes and communities during this health crisis and beyond. 

New Jersey First Lady Tammy Murphy will be joining us LIVE for this year's event! The First Lady's Nurture NJ initiative lays out a strategic plan that aims to make New Jersey a safer, more equitable state to deliver and raise a baby. The plan examines the structural barriers and systemic racism that impact maternal health and seeks to reduce maternal mortality in the state by 50 percent over five years and eliminate racial disparities in birth outcomes.

Event speakers and agenda coming soon but you can expect conversation on:

  • Addressing Homelessness
  • Impact of Eviction on Health
  • Aging in Place
  • Maternal Health & Childhood Safety
  • Community Health Needs Assessments
  • Pandemic & Health Disparities
Our keynote will be delivered by Samuel Ross, M.D., M.S., retired President of Bon Secours Baltimore Health System and Chief Community Health Officer of Bon Secours Mercy Health, one of the largest health care systems in the nation. Dr. Ross has been responsible for a vast network of community outreach divisions that focus on positively impacting outcomes that influence the social determinants of health, i.e. affordable housing, education, job skills, behavioral health, substance abuse and rehabilitation.
