Programs cater to a wide range of interests and ages, from young children to older adults. “Through surveys and research, we determine the top health needs of the surrounding communities and then design programs to address them,” says Diane Grillo, Vice President, Health Promotion at RWJUH Hamilton. A Medical Advisory Panel composed of 28 board-certified physicians advises on program development to maximize the benefit to attendees. Programs are held in-person at the RWJ Fitness & Wellness Center, RWJUH Hamilton's Center for Health and Wellness, located at 3100 Quakerbridge Road, in Hamilton/Mercerville, NJ, virtually online and out in our local communities.

Information and Education

The Mini-Medical School program is one of the many educational offerings available to the public through RWJUH Hamilton. This program is aimed at those who have an interest in health care as a career or just want a deeper understanding of human anatomy. RWJUH Hamilton physicians teach this 8-week course, focusing on a new element of health care and the body each week.

Holistic Health

RWJUH Hamilton’s holistic programs focus on non-medical wellness techniques, such as meditation, aromatherapy, and Reiki, which is a practice that promotes healing by improving energy flow around the body. In addition, the Holistic Program at RWJUH Hamilton’s Cancer Center offers a holistic approach to cancer care at no cost to our patients and their families.

A Focus on Nutrition
