Thank you for your interest in the NJHealth Study! Our team is excited to connect with you to discuss your potential participation in the study. The study, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS) and the State of New Jersey, will be one of the largest investigations ever undertaken to identify how life events and stressors influence health, well-being and health equity among New Jersey residents.

We hope you will join us in our journey to inform how policymakers, community leaders, and researchers can more effectively address the health needs of diverse communities.
