Community Outreach Project

The governors and resident council of the ACPNJ would like to share a Community Outreach Project.  As New Jersey’s Advocacy Council, we define ourselves by our service to our community. We recognize that as physicians, we have a responsibility to improve the lives and communities that need us most. Our responsibilities and our commitment take many forms – partnering with neighborhood schools, staffing free neighborhood health clinics, conducting free AIDS testing, offering food and shelter to the homeless. Our residents, faculty and community doctors show every day that they are part of a vibrant community. We hope to improve our commitment to our patients, share the breadth of our work and encourage the ethic of service to the many individuals who have no place to turn.

Each residency program in the state is encouraged to create their own project based on local community needs. Projects can be clinical or non-clinical but should be on-going with measurable outcomes. Please download and use this template to streamline the activity. Click here to download the template.

The 2020 Annual Meeting will have a forum for residents to present their service work. Check back for updates for the project launch.

If your program representative has any questions, please direct them to direct them to Kris Samara or Theresa Barrett.
