Health hearing

    New Jersey health care leaders and providers will host a public meeting tonight in conjunction with several religion leaders to create an actionable plan for making Camden healthy.


    Classified by the New Jersey Department of Health as medically underserved community, Camden residents don’t have enough access to affordable healthcare service, the Camden Churches Organized for People maintains.

    Healthcare professionals will discuss with the public accountable care organization, an aspect of healthcare reform that aims to lower the cost of providing health services.

    Reassigning nurses to Camden’s areas in need would be among the first steps of ACO. The meeting is at 6 p.m. at Camden Bible Tabernacle.
