Beacon Health System received a $5.4 million grant from the federal Health Resources and Services Administration for the Healthy Start Initiative: Eliminating Disparities in Perinatal Health. The Healthy Start Initiative will aim to improve birth outcomes, promote health equity, and eliminate health disparities. As part of the initiative, the Michiana Family Journey program will bring together more than 25 nonprofit partners in Elkhart and St. Joseph counties. This initiative has significant alignment to the Building Strong Brains Coalition work focused on maternal and child health. We are thrilled for our region to have this opportunity for continued collective impact!
