City of Asbury Park Recognized as “Healthy Town” by New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute Mayors Wellness Campaign

3/21/23, Asbury Park, NJ – The New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute and its Statewide Mayors Wellness Campaign (MWC) has recognized the City of Asbury Park as a 2022 “New Jersey Healthy Town”. The City joins only 14 other communities in New Jersey as winners of the 2022 “Healthy Town” awards. The award recognizes the work done in improving the health and wellness of residents through programs in areas such as exercise, healthy eating, and mental health education and awareness.

Each year, communities participating in the MWC program complete a comprehensive Healthy Town Application outlining the research done to identify community health needs. The application also highlights the actions taken to make communities healthier places to live, work and play.

The City of Asbury Park has received previous “Healthy Town” designation. The City’s 2022 application highlighted community partnerships offering free health screenings and farmers’ markets in collaboration with Hackensack Meridian Health and Interfaith Neighbors, among other partners, as well as programs including the monthly Mayor’s Fitness Challenges which provided free one-hour fitness challenges at various parks and open spaces throughout the year.

“The City of Asbury Park is pleased to be recognized as a 2022 New Jersey Healthy Town by the Quality Institute and its statewide MWC,” said Mayor John Moor. “Receiving gold-level designation is a testament to the hard work being done by our Mayor’s Wellness Committee members and city staff. Their efforts, along with the continued support of local community organizations, health care partners, and residents help promote a culture of health and active lifestyle for all of Asbury Park.”
