Join our NJ Physician's Forum

Please join our NJ Physician's Forum, a secure place for New Jersey physicians to discuss, share and network as we face this rapidly evolving crisis.

It is our hope that this is a place where NJ physicians can share questions, problems, solutions, and ideas with one another to assist the primary care community in being unified in its response.

Feel free to start threads as you see fit – including sharing info on telehealth issues.
