Healthy Town Award Presentation

Mayor Roma accepts the Health Town Award from Jana Dave, Director of Community Health at the NJ Healthcare Quality Institute which is a nonprofit, independent organization mostly focused on policy programs that aim to improve the quality of health care in New Jersey. The organization felt that Mayors, the Champions of Change, were underutilized when it came to health improvements in their towns. The Mayor’s Wellness Campaign was developed to empower Mayors and other community leaders with tools, support and program ideas so that local health and wellness programs can be launched locally. Beachwood was one of 2 winners of the 2015 award given out annually in the State of New Jersey. Jersey City and Beachwood were the winners. Ms. Dave was very excited to present this award to the Borough of Beachwood
