COLLABORATION WITH UHIP
The Urban Healthcare Initiative Program (UHIP) is a health literacy advocacy program providing educational support and training to individuals and organizations. Founded in 2010, the organization is the brainchild of Dr. Alexander Salerno in response to growing disparities in healthcare outcomes in the urban communities in the Greater Newark Area. Dr. Salerno recognized that access to care must be coupled with health information if health outcomes are to be optimized. Through the CHOP-UHIP collaboration, community members are equipped and empowered to make informed decisions about their healthcare. UHIP operates on the principle that “Knowledge is Power”.
