Program 1

Forums Institute's programs provide policy stakeholders the opportunity for communication and dialogue. The New Jersey Policy Forums on Health & Medical Care has enabled almost 3,000 state decision makers to participate in more than 50 nonpartisan forum sessions. The program has also generated an online archive of original issue briefs that offer timely, unbiased analysis on a range of health policy topics. Leadership for the 21st Century provides management training in best practices to senior officials in the executive branch of state government. Conversations use the same forum process and experienced facilitators to help organizations open a dialogue and solve critical problems.
