The theme of the conference, entitled “What Dictates Health - Is it Genetics or Zip Code?  Health Equity, Research and Policy for a Healthier New Jersey” has been established to describe how health is linked to broader geospatial factors and community needs; to showcase a place-based needs approach that addresses social, and environmental factors impacting individual community health; and to discuss relevance of compatibility of the State and community health data as needed for making policies and developing programs aimed at removing barriers to health.

The conference will bring local, state, and national public health leaders together to initiate a pragmatic dialogue addressing broad determinants of health and integrated solutions, and exhibiting the need for partnership and collective efforts towards provision of a fair and just opportunity for all New Jersians to be healthier.
