Health Equity in New Jersey During and After the Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a profound and lasting impact on neighborhoods, businesses, and people throughout the country and in New Jersey. The pain is felt disproportionately among people and communities of color - many of whom were already experiencing low wages and health disparities prior to the worst public health crisis in a century. As the pandemic rages on, these and other pre-existing inequities in New Jersey are growing.  

When New Jersey eventually shifts focus from relief to recovery, plans must address the heightened impact on communities that were already lacking access to opportunities for good health before the pandemic. For our state to truly recover, we must take steps to ensure that New Jersey emerges healthier and more equitable than before.

Join RWJF Director of New Jersey Grantmaking, Maisha Simmons, along with a cross section of leaders as they discuss strategies and solutions needed for post-pandemic health equity in New Jersey.

Panelists include:  

Shereef M. Elnahal, M.D., M.B.A, President and CEO of University Hospital

Ivette Guillermo-McGahee, Founder and Executive Director of Allies In Caring, Inc.

Allison Hamblin, President and CEO of the Center for Health Care Strategies

Shané Harris, Vice President of Social Responsibility and Partnerships, President, The Prudential Foundation at Prudential Financial
