Knitting Club

The NJMS Knitting Club brings together all of the knitters and crocheters of NJMS. Our club is both a gathering for knitters and crocheters to discuss their projects and swap ideas, and also a philanthropic organization that creates garments to donate. Currently, we are making hats and blankets for babies born in the University Hospital nursery but plan to expand to make hats, gloves, and scarves for local shelters.

'Lifestyle medicine is the evidence-based practice of helping individuals and families adopt and sustain healthy behaviors that affect health and quality of life. Examples of target patient behaviors include, but are not limited to, eliminating tobacco use, improving diet, increasing physical activity, and moderating alcohol consumption.'


Our mission is to promote healthy behaviors to advance wellness and to both prevent and reverse chronic disease. We have a number of initiatives to accomplish these goals, including group exercise meet-ups, lifestyle medicine lectures, innovative physician practice visits, and culinary medicine workshops.

Vocal Chords

The Vocal Chords a capella group was founded over a decade ago. Through the years, students ranging from beginners with no musical or vocal training to students with impressive pedigrees have lent their voices to the halls of NJMS and University hospital, performing for patients, faculty, and fellow students alike.

At present, Vocal Chords, is a sub-group of the larger and all-encompassing NJMS Musician's Society, sponsored by The Healthcare Foundation Center for Humanism and Medicine. We perform for events such as Follies, a school-wide talent show, faculty appreciation dinners, the Humanism Center Holiday Concert, and the annual NJMS Holiday Coffeehouse. We cover a wide range of genres, from classical to holiday tunes, to contemporary jazz and pop arrangements.
