Borough of Roselle Launches Wellness Campaign
Public Library Receives Five iPads through NJHealthConnect
Borough officials are focused on improving the health and wellness of residents and businesses through a new community health initiative, the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign.
Launched on March 14, 2022 by Mayor Donald Shaw and the Borough Council, the campaign was spurred by an important donation to the Roselle Public Library (RPL) - five iPads connected to a statewide telehealth program, NJHealthConnect @ Your Library. The program is designed to address barriers to health equity among residents.
“Before I had the honor of being mayor, I was a coach to some of our youngest residents who tried to inspire others to be their best self, which is why I’m so happy to spearhead this wellness campaign in conjunction with the Council, Department of Health, Department of Recreation and the Library,” said Shaw.
The iPads are preloaded with 24/7 telemedicine apps of major hospital systems in the state. Each iPad contains links to multilingual health information; mental health resources for adults and teens; Zoom and Google apps for doctor conferences; crisis hotlines; and links to the latest Covid updates in English and Spanish.
