We welcome members from the community, other agencies, health care providers, and current or former Healthy Start clients to help us achieve our mission to improve the health and well-being of pregnant women, infants, and young children in Sarasota County.
We depend on our members to assist us in formulating and reaching our short- and long-term goals.
The goal of our work is to prevent or reduce fetal and infant mortality, prematurity, and low birth weight, and to maximize the health and development of infants and children up to age three.
The Healthy Start Coalition keeps Members abreast of the latest data, initiatives, and programs to improve pregnancy and infant health in Sarasota County and beyond.
Our business meetings are only held once a quarter (March, June, September and December). This is a great opportunity to become familiar with other agencies’ services and share your expertise with us.
You’ll find them a great place to network with others who share your desire to help families in our community. And together we can accomplish astonishing goals!
