Margie Heller is a leader of the Social Impact and Community Investment Practice, a collaborative effort among RWJBarnabas Health, facility leaders, and community stakeholders to eliminate health care disparities and address social determinants of health. One pillar of the practice is global health, which strives to help vulnerable communities across the United States and abroad. Heller dedicates herself to building stronger communities, locally and globally.
Heller’s work has included the establishment and implementation of an employee volunteer initiative; enhancing capacity building of local community-based organizations in RWJBarnabas Health communities; and formalizing the integration of anchor mission strategy, facility goal identification, and attainment with special efforts to address institutional policies and practices. She works with employees, businesses, and academic partners to address social determinants and understand the unique needs of the communities in which she works.
Heller has co-led 14 disaster relief missions in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic and continually collaborates with universities, international nongovernment organizations, and medical schools in the U.S. and abroad to address health priorities in under-resourced countries. Domestically, Heller established a relationship with the Health Wagon, a nonprofit organization in southwest Virginia, to provide colon screenings to the area’s medically underserved population.
