Trenton Health Team understands factors affecting health and well-being include the environment, economy, education, behavioral health, access to care, safety, and government policies
THT includes residents, patients and community leaders in needs assessments, decisions about resource allocation and program design, and program evaluation. We hold community forums and provide services in neighborhood settings throughout the city to support a systems approach to health improvement.
THT’s Community Advisory Board represents more than 99 organizations and 220 individuals. We convene quarterly to share information, brainstorm solutions and co-design interventions enhancing health and well-being.
CAB workgroups focus on specific topics, such as access to healthy food and maternal health; while affinity groups encourage partnerships among colleagues such as community health workers or communications directors. Current workgroups and affinity groups include:
- Capital City Diabetes Collaborative
- Complete Streets Steering Committee
- Lead and Healthy Housing
- Maternal Health Stakeholders
- Trenton Food Stakeholders
- Mayor’s Resilient Trenton Taskforce (ACEs)
- Capital City Communications
- Community Health Workers
Feedback from CAB members and the people they serve shapes our work and provides qualitative data by which to evaluate progress.
