The New Jersey Healthy Kids Initiative (NJHKI)

NJHKI builds upon the core values of the Rutgers New Jersey Institute for Food, Nutrition, and Health with a focus on health equity and community partnership. By uniting with local families to pinpoint child health needs and explore where they are unmet, the NJHKI can develop a task force to address those needs. Learn more about us.
