With the arrival of summer, we've got a full lineup of ways to keep protecting children's health and hope you'll join us. 
With the season of barbeques here, our medical advisor, Dr. Ben Kligler, offers encouragement and insights on how to bring organics to the table affordably. As always, our Healthy Recipes provide plenty of seasonal inspiration!
This summer, sustainability continues to be at the core of our mission, and we're finding innovative ways to make Hackensack Meridian greener and healthier for all. Our network, the largest healthcare system in New Jersey, was recently honored with the Sustainable Jersey Business Leadership Award for commitment to the sustainability principles of people, planet, and prosperity. These initiatives reach beyond our medical sites, out to the communities HMH serves across the garden state.  
With cleaning top-of-mind for all communities during the pandemic, the Environmental Health of Latinas in Cleaning Occupations (EHLCO) study focuses on the dedicated cleaning professionals who do the critical work of keeping spaces clean. Find out more about our innovative Research here
