Hunterdon Health Foundation has been awarded $10,000 from NJM Insurance Group in support of two important health programs.
The Group Prenatal Program helps pregnant Latina women and their families in Hunterdon Health’s service area. The program aims to improve access to prenatal care and positive birth outcomes, provide culturally sensitive care, and increase health care between pregnancies for women and children. Women meet in a group and receive medical, informational, and social support. Program data show a significantly higher number of Latinas in Hunterdon County start prenatal care in the first trimester compared to before the program was started.
Funding from NJM Insurance Group will also support the Integrative Medicine program. The program involves training of Residents in our Hunterdon Family Medicine Residency program in Integrative Medicine Modalities and using integrative methods in Hunterdon Health services. Funds will be used for the costs of curriculum, materials, and program development. Modalities covered and used in programming include pain management, nutrition, vitamins, minerals, and common supplements, and mind-body techniques.
“These two important health programs will help ensure that the diverse medical needs of Hunterdon County residents are met,” said Pat Hartpence, NJM Corporate Giving Officer. “We are delighted to support the Hunterdon Health Foundation’s work to expand critical healthcare services for the community.”
“We are grateful for NJM’s commitment to these programs that help patients in our community. This funding furthers the mission of both our organizations to ensure health, safety, and quality service to the populations we serve,” said Amy Tiedemann, Director of Development, Hunterdon Health Foundation.
