CarePoint Health hosted an event for New City Kids at the Vroom Street Evangelical Free Church in Jersey City on May 20, 2014. CarePoint Health brought together a panel of speakers to provide information about jobs in the field of medicine and to encourage high school students to consider careers in health care. On hand were Dr. Angelo Caprio, Dr. Vivek Masson and EMT Captain Ray Branagan for an informational and question and answer session with program members. New City Kids is a non-profit organization in Jersey City that provides educational and after school programs and whose mission is to create a community of academic, leadership, musical, and spiritual development for young people in the area. The event was part of a continuing effort by CarePoint Health to reach out to the communities served by Bayonne Medical Center, Christ Hospital and Hoboken University Medical Center.

The panel speakers have deep ties to Hudson County: Dr. Angelo Caprio is the Chief Medical Officer at Hoboken University Medical Center; Dr. Vivek Masson, who grew up in Jersey City, is the head of Radiology at CarePoint Health; and Ray Branagan is a leader of the EMT squad. Each discussed their area of expertise, their education and career ambitions. The heart of the presentation was an exploration of workplace responsibilities in their respective jobs. The students were able to ask questions and expressed enthusiasm for opportunities in the field of health care. The event was indicative of the connections CarePoint Health has made with communities in Hudson County and the health system’s commitment to partner with organizations that are dedicated to the overall wellness families in the area.
