Evaluating and Strengthening the Trenton Health Team Community Advisory Board
Januarry 2021 – Ongoing // New Jersey
Trenton Health Team is an innovative, multi-sector partnership dedicated to the health and well-being of the greater Trenton, New Jersey community.
Trenton Health Team is dedicated to improving the well-being of greater Trenton by partnering with the community to expand access to high-quality, coordinated, cost-effective healthcare and addressing housing quality, food security, neighborhood safety, education and social inequities inextricably linked to poor health outcomes.
THT is an innovative non-profit collaboration including the city of Trenton’s two hospitals, St. Francis Medical Center and Capital Health; its only Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), Henry J. Austin Health Center, and the City of Trenton Department of Health and Human Services. By forging partnerships, creating new educational pathways and engaging city residents in creative ways, THT is transforming healthcare for residents. We believe that by collaborating we can actually drive down costs while providing significantly better, more comprehensive and effective care.
VNL is working with the Trenton Health Team to map and understand how they are perceived by the community and other members of their network. Specifically, they’ll be exploring the Community Advisory Board, for which the THT is a Backbone Organization. We will also evaluate their role as an information sharing network, along with sub-functions of several Board subcommittees.
