Get Healthy Camden is a working group of the Camden Collaborative Initiative, and a coalition of partners from multiple sectors aimed at integrating health into community development planning, “complete streets” transportation projects, sustainability initiatives, and more.
Based on the County Health Rankings, Get Healthy Camden’s Blueprint for Action is a three-point plan to improve health outcomes in Camden by addressing community health and wellness, equitable change and sustainability, and improving environmental conditions that impact walkability and bikability. The Blueprint includes goals such as instituting healthy food and beverage options at three major employers, and expanding the Camden Night Gardens event to attract more trail users.
The Get Healthy Camden coalition represents one of the 10 New Jersey communities supported in the first round of the NJHI: Communities Moving to Action initiative. View this coalition’s optimistic vision toward a healthier Camden and a healthier Garden State.
