Description

This year marks the North Jersey Community Research Initiative (NJCRI) 30th year anniversary, a milestone in our storied history!

This anniversary creates an opportunity to reflect and celebrate on how NJCRI has grown from just a vision to a multifaceted community based organization and medical care center. In 1988, NJCRI made its mark as a pioneer for HIV research and clinical trials, the first in the state of New Jersey. We stood in the forefront fighting for access to treatment and care for all affected at a time where his wide spread epidemic was taking the lives of thousands and those affected had on where to seek help. NJCRI was and continues to be a voice for those that are silenced by stigma, fear, and discrimination.

NJCRI has grown beyond HIV to a multifaceted community based organization & medical care center serving over 9,500 clients a year and providing over 25 community programs and interventions. At the core of our celebration is our commitment to :"increase access to quality primary medical care fo all" a priority that will drive our efforts as we empower our community to take control of their physical and mental health.

The night will begin with a cocktail reception at 6pm followed by a fantastic dinner program at 7pm hosted by Lisa Mateo, Two-time Emmy-nominated reporter, and host of WPIX 11 “Celebrity Taste Makers”. She will lead us through an inspiring and fun evening that will include Honoree awards for Medical Excellence, Political Leadership, and Community Advocacy, to incredible leaders from our community.

The Honoree award recipients for our 30th Anniversary gala are:

NJ Lt. Governor Sheila Y. Oliver
NJ Senator Teresa Ruiz
U.S. Senator for NJ Cory A. Booker
Dr. Robert L. Johnson MD., FAAP, Dean of Rutgers NJ Medical School.

It is through their efforts towards medical advancements, legislative change and tireless advocacy, that each of these individuals has motivated agencies like NJCRI to not only think outside of the box, but to thrive. Their dedication, fortitude and social consciousness to support innovative treatments and services has helped to increase our efforts and that of countless others in the realization of improvements in the health, well-being and quality of life for all citizens in our communities and across our great State of New Jersey.

Four-time Grammy nominated singer and Tony Award winning actress and singer, Melba Moore, will be our musical guest performing live! There will also be a Silent Auction going on the entire evening!

This fantastic event will take place on October 25, 2018 at Nanina's in the Park, in Belleville New Jersey.
