NJPHA’s 2018 Annual Conference

Tuesday, October 2, 2018


Paul Robeson Campus Center
Rutgers University
Newark, NJ


“What Dictates Health - Is it Genetics or Zip Code?

Health Equity, Research, and Policy for a Healthier New Jersey”

The 2018 Annual Conference is a collaboration between the New Jersey Public Health Association and the Rutgers School of Public Health.

This year’s Conference will:

-describe how health is linked to broader geospatial factors and community needs;

-showcase a place-based needs approach that addresses social and environmental factors impacting individual and community health; and

-discuss relevant, compatible state and community health data needed for making policies and developing programs aimed at removing barriers to health.


Local, state, and national health care and public health leaders will come together to initiate a pragmatic dialogue addressing broad determinants of health and integrated solutions, and exhibiting the need for partnership and collective efforts towards provision of a fair and just opportunity for all New Jerseyans to be healthier.


Application for Public Health Continuing Education (CE) contact hours for Health Educators, Health Officers, and Environmental Health Specialists is pending.
