This service expanded to include individuals with mental health struggles and was rebranded as Community Healthcare Outreach Program (CHOP Health). Committed to minimizing disparities in healthcare outcomes primarily affecting urban communities, he launched the Urban Healthcare Initiative Program (UHIP) in 2010.
To expand primary care in the region, Metropolitan Medical Group opened in 2014 and Dr. Salerno joined his father-in-law, Dr. Raouf Elias, at Roseville Medical Society in 2015 to help him care for patients in Newark, NJ.
