ENSURING EQUAL ACCESS TO ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS THAT SUPPORT HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
To me, a culture of health is one in which all people have equal access to the services and conditions that support health and well-being. My focus area is on maximizing opportunities to apply information about environmental conditions and environmental health to inform community planning and decision-making. My intent is to create tools and resources that community leaders and decision-makers can use throughout New Jersey to apply extensive sets of data about environmental conditions and environmental health to help create communities that are healthy, safe, prosperous and equitable.
MORE ABOUT JEANNE
For more than 30 years, I have worked in government, non-profit and academic settings to advance environmental programs and policies that promote healthy communities and sustainable development. I am the right person for this program and area of focus because my experience has been both as a leader and a worker bee and because the scope of environmental issues in which I have been engaged is very diverse.
