The Greater Mercer Public Health Partnership (GMPHP) will host a town meeting during which the findings of an assessment of the healthcare needs of Mercer County and surrounding communities will be presented. The meeting will be held July 18 from 8:45 to 10:30 a.m. in ETS on Carter Road, Lawrenceville.
The meeting is open to anyone who lives, works or attends school in Mercer County. All are encouraged to participate in the discussion on needs concerning health-education, the economy, housing and transportation.
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.”
