SUMMIT, NJ - The New Jersey Hospital Association (NJHA) has honored Overlook Medical Center with its Community Outreach award for its Stroke Education and Screening Program.  

The Stroke Education and Screening program of Overlook’s Community Health department provides three primary activities: free screenings; Brain Power, an interactive inflatable brain and educational program about brain health; and lectures by a stroke survivor.  Overlook Medical Center’s Healthy Avenues community van brings screenings directly to targeted populations at community- and faith-based organizations, businesses, senior centers, libraries, low income housing and municipal health departments.
The Community Health department was honored for making a significant impact in preventing disease and injury in the New Jersey communities it serves.  Since Jan. 1, 2013, the program has screened more than 1,400 individuals in the targeted populations and welcomed more than 700 school children to its Brain Power program.
 
NJHA and its Health Research and Educational Trust of New Jersey recognize organizations that identify community needs and implement programs to serve those needs.  The 2013 awards recognized achievements in the following categories: enhancing access and quality of care to reduce disparities; improving end-of-life care; and preventing disease and injury.
