Healthy Start turns 25!

On June 4, 1991, then-Governor Lawton Chiles signed into law the landmark Healthy Start program to make sure every baby in the state lived to reach their first birthday. Twenty-five years later, local Coalitions coordinate maternal and child health services in each community; more than 150,000 thousand families each year receive critical care coordination and support; and the infant mortality rate has declined dramatically. Learn more about how the program began and what we have accomplished in the Healthy Start: 25 Years video below!
