Keynote Speaker

Dr. Jeff Brenner
Executive Director of the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers

Dr. Jeffrey Brenner, MD, is a family physician who has worked in Camden, NJ for the past fifteen years. Dr. Brenner graduated from Vassar College with his BA in Biology in 1990 and from Robert Wood Johnson Medical School with his MD in 1995. He completed his residency with Swedish Family Medicine Residency in Seattle, WA in 1998. Dr. Brenner owned and operated a solo-practice, urban family medicine office in Camden that provided full-spectrum family health services, including delivering babies, caring for children and adults, and doing home visits, to a largely Hispanic, Medicaid-enrolled population.

Recognizing the need for a new way for hospitals, providers, and community residents to collaborate, he founded the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers in 2003, where he has since served as Executive Director. 

Through the Camden Coalition, local stakeholders are working to build an integrated health delivery model to provide better care for Camden City residents. Dr. Brenner’s work was profiled by the writer and surgeon Dr. Atul Gawande in an article in The New Yorker, entitled “The Hot Spotters” (1/24/11), and by an episode of PBS Frontline (7/27/11). In 2013 he was named a MacArthur Fellow, and in the fall of 2014 he was elected to the Institute of Medicine.

Dr. Brenner is the Medical Director of the Urban Health Institute, a dedicated business unit at the Cooper Health System focused on improving care of the underserved. Using modern business techniques, they are redesigning long-standing clinical care models to deliver better care at lower cost.

In addition, Dr. Brenner serves as a clinical instructor for Cooper Medical School at Rowan University and an adjunct assistant professor for The Dartmouth Institute.
