Florida Healthy Babies
Florida Healthy Babies Initiative
Florida’s Healthy Babies is an effort of the department’s Health Equity Program Council, which focuses on helping all Floridians achieve health equity, or the highest level of health. Though Florida has experienced declining morbidity and mortality rates, disparities persist and the department is committed to achieving health equity and eliminating these differences. The council is comprised of county health officers and leaders in the state health office and works to assist local efforts, monitor emerging research and determine how to expand best practices statewide.
Please see the Dixie County Florida's Healthy Babies Action Plan for detailed statistics and a listing of goals and objectives.
