I am a physician in Essex County. I have extensive experience working with poor and marginalized persons in Chicago, NYC, and Cite Soleil, Haiti. I know firsthand the many challenges faced when undertaking what can be a most ominous task, and I have been duly impressed with the terrific work being done at JVS. Clients are treated respectfully and with kindness. They seem genuinely happy! By reaching out to those persons with disabilities as well as those who attend English as a Second Language classes, the agency provides on-site preventive services, health education and an annual health fair. I enjoy speaking with JVS clients and students during workshops when I share tips on living a healthy lifestyle, eating right and preventing heart disease. I am happy to support JVS in any way I can to ensure this program continues to flourish in the future.
