The New Jersey Lung Health Institute: Building a Lung Health Ecosystem in New Jersey

On October 4, 2019, Dr. Maria Laura Gennaro, presented her initiative for the creation of a New Jersey Lung Health Institute (NJLHI) at the Big Ideas Symposium, organized by Rutgers University.  Dr. Gennaro’s vision of NJLHI is for health providers and scholars to work together with New Jersey communities to identify their lung health needs and to find causes and cures for their lung diseases.  To read about the NJLHI and the impact it can have on communities in New Jersey, download  Vision of NJLHI.pdf.

For the Big Ideas, Rutgers will partner with donors and the community to secure private support for projects best poised to build a stronger Rutgers and transform society.  To learn more about the Big Ideas and for an overview of the Symposium, please visit bigideas.rutgers.edu.
