This year’s annual meeting NJNI has taken a new twist on our meeting format. We will walk you through the life of living in poverty for one week in a few hours time where you will truly come to understand the social determinants of health. There will be community engagement from those living and breathing this life and scenarios that will be sure to change your view on health care and health care delivery models for the future. This impactful meeting will not only make you think differently, but it will touch your soul and leave you with a new understanding of the clients you serve.
