Advocacy & Outreach

Health is more than healthcare. Addressing the well-being of children takes us outside the walls of the clinic and the hospital.

Community health issues like poverty, obesity, and injuries cannot be tackled alone. Successful prevention is a result of collaborative, working partnerships with families, community organizations, schools, policy makers, and people like you.
