SJFMC Provides Healthy Food For Families

SJFMC provides help for families in need during the pandemic and beyond with free food giveaways at our Pleasantville and Atlantic City Health Centers. We distributed more than 1,200 boxes of produce, back to school, and high demand items during our National Health Center Week events on August 15 and again on August 29. “Our community has been adversely affected by COVID-19,” said Linda Flake, president, and CEO of Southern Jersey Family Medical Centers. “People are out of work, struggling to get food on the table. The pandemic has forced many to choose between paying the bills and buying food. This year, we’re trying to meet the need for food. The need is tremendous.” The event was held in partnership with the Community Food Bank of New Jersey’s COVID-19 Food Assistance Program. Food Drive 1 Food Drive 1 Food Drive 1 Food Drive 1

Care Coordination Team Continues to Combat Black Maternal and Infant Mortality

Chronic Disease Coordinator Yoammy Pozo and Director of Clinical Support Services and Community Engagement Destiny Wood join New Jersey’s First Lady Tammy Murphy at the Family Festival in Atlantic City. On Saturday, September 7, SJFMC took part in First Lady Tammy Murphy’s Family Festival in Atlantic City. The event is a part of Murphy’s Nurture NJ awareness campaign, aimed at combating the maternal and infant health crisis in New Jersey, where black women are five times more likely than white women to die from childbirth-related complications. Director of Clinical Support Services and Community Engagement Destiny Wood said, “The first lady recognizes the issue that plagues our patient population. It’s a major push of ours and she is doing her part to make a difference across the state. We are here to support the mission and improve the lives of local families.” During the event, SJFMC connected about 850 mothers, fathers, grandparents and others involved in taking care of children with information on much-needed services including prenatal care, pediatric services and mental health.
