Rutgers School of Public Health Annual Public Health Symposium – Socially Connected Communities: How Can Public Health Be an Agent of Change?
Evidence shows that social connectedness reduces the risk for premature mortality – and lacking social connection increases risk, even more than the risks associated with issues that receive public health attention and resources.
On Monday, April 5, Rutgers School of Public Health will present its 26th Annual Public Health Symposium from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET. “Socially Connected Communities” is the 2021 theme and this virtual event will feature conversations with experts and leaders representing local public health agencies, the Freehold Area Health Department, Jewish Family Services in Atlantic County, Healthy Places by Design and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation as they share the valuable ways in which they are working to help communities feel connected.
There is a two-step registration process for this event:
Step 1: Register through the NJ Learning Management Network web site.
Step 2: Register via Zoom to receive the link to the symposium.
