Population Health and Wellness
According to the U.S. Census, South Jersey is home to more than 2.4 million residents. Its eight counties span rich geography full of multifaceted industries and economies, as well as diverse communities—all of which play a role in overall health, and health disparities, throughout the region.
In this area, WRI focuses on population health, or “the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group.” WRI conducts research, collects and analyzes data, and translates the findings for use by a broad range of stakeholders. We apply this knowledge toward policy development and program implementation. In turn, we evaluate policies and programs for effectiveness, further contributing to the research base available to decision-makers and practitioners.
Our work connects those who need it with the objective research and guidance necessary to make informed decisions about population health policy and program implementation. WRI is also a sought-after backbone organization with a strong history of facilitating collaborative population health and wellness initiatives.
