05/31/2016

Margaret Fisher, M.D., medical director of The Unterberg Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center, was recently presented with a certificate of appreciation for RWJBarnabas Health and Monmouth Medical Center — proud sponsors of the Asbury Park Music in Film Festival by the Hope Academy Charter School in Asbury Park.

As an exclusive Founding Partner, RWJBarnabas Health announced a multi-year deal that has expanded to arts and culture within the Asbury Park community all year around. The Festival raises funds for the Asbury Park Music Foundation and benefits music education for children throughout the city, including students at Hope Academy.

“As Monmouth Medical Center is an intricate part of the fabric of the local community and is dedicated to serving the people of the city of Asbury Park, we strongly support the Asbury Park Music in Film Festival and its music programs for children,” said Dr. Fisher. “We are particularly proud in 2016, which marks the 10th anniversary of The Unterberg Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center, to support the Asbury Park Music Foundation. Along with the festival organizers, we understand the impact the arts can have on a student moving towards higher education, and we are proud to help these underserved children receive music education, lessons, instruments, programs and social connection opportunities through crucial programs such as Music Saved My Life.”

Prior to the certificate presentation, Dr. Fisher provided parents at Hope Academy with general health and wellness guidance for their children, including vaccines and nutrition. This program was made possible through a community health education outreach initiative by The Unterberg Children’s Hospital Leadership Council.
