Hamilton Township is pleased to share that it has been named a 2022 Healthy Town Gold Level by the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute through the Mayors Wellness Campaign (MWC).
The MWC is an initiative of the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute in partnership with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities. One of the main goals of the MWC is to improve the overall health and wellness of New Jersey communities. Through public-private partnerships, the MWC provides structure and evidence-based resources for community health initiatives. By encouraging mayors to play a leadership role in supporting opportunities for active and healthy lifestyles and incorporating the social determinants of health into all policies, New Jersey is becoming a national leader in community-based health interventions. The partnership between Hamilton Township and the MWC began over 20 years ago in an effort to encourage the local community to get on the path to active living and healthier lifestyles.
In February 2022, Mayor Jeff Martin renewed his commitment to improving the health and wellness of Hamilton Township by signing the Mayors Wellness Campaign (MWC) Annual Pledge of Participation and formed the Hamilton Township Mayor’s Wellness Campaign Committee which aims to improve the overall health and wellness of Hamilton residents by planning wellness activities throughout the year for residents to participate in.
“It’s an honor for Hamilton to be recognized as a 2022 New Jersey Healthy Town Gold Level by the Quality Institute. Our Mayors Wellness Campaign aims to improve the overall health and wellness of Hamilton residents by engaging our community in wellness activities throughout the year. Our MWC Committee and community partners will continue to work hard in 2023 to provide opportunities for our residents to improve their personal health,” stated Mayor Martin.
