A Healthier Elsinboro

The last two years have flown by.  What began as a simple idea, has grown into the beginning of a healthier future.  Our initial goal was to establish a path for our community to adapt healthier lifestyles.  While there have been challenges along the way, we are proud of the progress that was made.  Our joint-use agreement is complete, our nutritional assessment has been completed by our residents, and we have secured a contract for the creation of our walking path.  We believe that these steps, have opened the door to future opportunities.

As a small community, we are committed to sustainability.  Our sustainability efforts focus on many things, but the health of our community is paramount to our future.  We are a proud community, dedicated to continuously improving, to be the best that we can be.  We are proud to share that our grant was a success and look forward to using these initiatives as building blocks for the future of our community.  Thank you to the NJCHN for all of your assistance, and the Salem Health and Wellness Foundation for your funding of our initiatives.  Today, Elsinboro is healthier as a result.
