Healthier Perth Amboy

Work Groups



Contributors outside the Healthier Perth Amboy Consortium - consisted of a robust, high functioning network of partners, concerned stakeholders, schools, community businesses, and individuals - which required heavy community outreach, were structured into work groups. Each work group - community, workplace, and faith based, healthcare, healthy corner stores and restaurants, healthy schools and childcare centers - actively held work group meetings providing insight to create an organized approach to achieve a greater focus of health. Using the County Health Rankings and Roadmaps Model as a guide, the work groups consolidated and identified four health factors with seven overall goal statements and 22 action steps. Roles of leader(s) and partners were established for each action step throughout the blue print discussion. In order to accomplish each action step, a timeline, resource allocations, and indicators of success were outlined.
