The Greater Mercer Public Health Partnership (GMPHP) is pleased to present the findings of an assessment of the healthcare needs of Mercer County and surrounding communities at a “Healthy Future Town Hall Meeting.” The meeting will take place at ETS on Carter Road in Lawrenceville on Wednesday, July 18, 2012 from 8:45 am until 10:30 am.
If you live, work, go to school, or play in Mercer County, your participation is encouraged in this meeting to talk about the “health of our community” by discussing needs concerning health-education, the economy, housing, transportation and much more.
In collaboration with community leaders, the partnership is a coalition of area hospitals and health departments, led by United Way of Greater Mercer County.
The partnership received a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Jersey Health Initiatives to conduct a community health needs assessment, which will ultimately lead towards a community health improvement plan. As New Jersey Hospital Association President and CEO Betsy Ryan stated, “Knowing your community and its unique health needs is essential to providing the best possible healthcare services. This information also is critical for effectively allocating scarce resources, especially in the current economic climate.”
There is no charge for the event and it is open to everyone. Registration is required at http://www.uwgmc.org/health-needs or by calling Toni Lewis 609.637.4906 or email Antonia.firstname.lastname@example.org.
