Live Well Waco: A community coalition dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of McLennan County citizens through collaborative community action, education, andprevention.
Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait: The Healthy Babies Coalition is a joint initiative by several community agencies, churches and area hospitals formed to decrease infant mortality in the Waco-McLennan County area. According to the Department of State services, the infant death rate in McLennan County is 29.5%. The HBC will be working to lower that rate by utilizing the March of Dimes' Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait campaign, which focuses on 5 major core components, or the 5 P’s, of lowering risk for infant death: Partnerships and collaborations, Patient initiatives, Provider support, Public engagement, and Progress management.
