  • Upon member adoption, identify key contacts and wellness coordinators for the municipalities and make visits to begin assessing current programs in place and/or focus on steps to get started
  • Send a health interest survey out to identify specific needs and interest
  • Identify current insurance and wellness programs available to members
  • Identify county and hospital programs
  • Identify government and/or state grants

I look forward to helping the Atlantic County JIF members reach their health goals.
