The Nicholson Foundation, The Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation and The Burke Foundation join New Jersey Department of Health in supporting the implementation of Centering as model of choice across five sites in the state.
Centering Healthcare Institute (CHI) announced today that it will implement its evidence-based CenteringPregnancy® and CenteringParenting® models of group care across five community health centers in New Jersey. CHI has received funding in the amount of $445,000 from The Nicholson Foundation, The Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation and The Burke Foundation to improve infant and maternal mortality in the state. This is a collaborative effort with the New Jersey Department of Health’s ‘Healthy Women, Healthy Families’ initiative to improve pregnancy outcomes in high risk populations, address health disparities and reduce Black infant mortality.
“New Jersey joins a growing number of states that are aggressively prioritizing women and families through the investment in access to Centering,” said Angie Truesdale, Chief Executive Officer of CHI. “We are excited and honored to be part of this partnership and looking forward to supporting these five sites in improving their birth outcomes and empowering young families.”
