About NJCHA Meetings

Every attempt is made to rotate meetings among college health services who volunteer to serve as hosts and select one college from the north, central and southern areas of the state during each academic year. Interested in hosting next year? Email Holly Heller ([email protected]), corresponding secretary, to indicate your interest in serving as host.
