To accomplish this, the Institute works with a robust network of community partners that serve the City of Trenton. By combining strengths, Capital Health and its partners are able to engage our neighbors, effectively use data, and develop innovative, scalable, and reproducible programs that go beyond the scope of traditional care and allow us to improve the health and well-being of Trenton residents.
