Health Leaders Media

Jeffrey Brenner, MD, the founder and executive director of the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers and the medical director for the Urban Health Institute at Cooper Hospital, both in Camden, N.J.—one of the poorest communities in the country—became interested in providing primary care to highly complex patients as a medical student working in an inner-city free clinic.

While training alongside a passionate physician and mentor, Brenner says he realized how important it is to take the time to build strong relationships with patients who have complicated barriers to care.
