La Casa de Don Pedro’s traditional annual event returns this May to NICO Kitchen + Bar at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark on Tuesday, May 8th at 6pm.
La Casa es su Casa will celebrate the milestones and honor the heroes who are moving the needle in making New Jersey’s communities healthier. Our Theme, “Health Matters” explores the growing awareness about the social determinants of health. It will share La Casa de Don Pedro’s role – and responsibility – as a comprehensive, community development organization to help guide our community on a path to progress by addressing all of the factors – from education, housing, employment, social supports, access to health services, and more - to enhance people’s quality of life and to allow them to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.
The evening will be led by emcee Alexandra Hill News Anchor and Reporter of WBGO Jazz 88.3.
We are thrilled to announce our two evening’s honorees:
Dr. Denise V. Rodgers, Vice Chancellor for Interprofessional Programs at Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences
Pamela Clarke, Ph.D., MBA, President & CEO of Newark Community Health Centers.
These two pillars of Newark’s health community have been paving the way for change in Newark, working to ensure health providers and the public and private sector work together, collaboratively, to move the needle in making Greater Newark a healthy community.
Thank you to our event’s sponsors, current as of March 26.
