Leading The Way For A Healthier Freehold
Our Neighborhood Connections to Health Coalition attended a summer workshop supported by our grantor, New Jersey Health Initiatives (NJHI), and facilitated by Abigail Dunne-Moses – a senior faculty member at the Center for Creative Leaderships. Our four work groups: Access to Healthy Food Options, Walkability/Bikeability, Inter-generational Physical Activity Program and Lead Poisoning Prevention all participated to improve work, growth and collaboration within the coalition. During this program, participants identified the challenges of direction, alignment and commitment within the sub groups along with the critical issues facing the coalition. During the workshop, each subgroup presented any conflicts that they had identified, which allowed them to openly discuss ways to overcome their challenges and constructively work through those conflicts. Neighborhood Connections to Health is taking strides to continue moving to action and work on building a healthier Freehold!
