The Health and Safety Newark Leadership Roundtable has ended. Watch the livestream here.
Developed through the joint vision of Mr. Al Koeppe (The Newark Alliance), Dr. Clement Price (Rutgers University) , Rev. Dr. M. William Howard (Bethany Baptist Church) , and in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of The Positive Community magazine, the NLRS consists of three roundtable discussions, a Town Hall Meeting and Small Business Expo and The 1st Annual Positive Community Awards.
The 2nd Annual Newark Leadership Roundtable Series presented by The Positive Community magazine kicks off on Saturday February 25th. Topics will cover health/healthcare in our community, including mental health, healthcare delivery services, the impact of violence on healthcare, how as a community we can better care for ourselves and the mechanisms available to help make that possible. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Denise Rogers, President of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. Dr. Philip Bonaparte, VP, Chief Medical Officer of Horizon NJ Health will present. The roundtable audience will include 150 hand-picked attendees who will be able to effectively interface with the panel based on their experience with the topic subject matter as well. The outcome and goal of these panels will be to discuss and create innovative solutions given the challenges facing Newark or any 21st Century major urban center.
The 2012 NLRS series will take place at The Newark Club, in downtown Newark. We will also stream these roundtables live to reach national base of viewers and participants to the discussion. Each session will also host a live Twitter feed and Facebook page to facilitate questions from the community and from all over the country. Excerpts from the discussion will be printed in The Positive Community magazine.
