Community Outreach Department

Supporting the hospital’s Mission Statement of “We champion children by making them better today and healthier tomorrow,” the many health education activities of the Community Outreach Department provide a positive, hands-on presence outside the walls of the hospital in communities all across the state.

School visits, presentations, developed programs, community engagement activities and targeted partnerships are all designed to deliver effective, evidence-based education relating to wellness, prevention and health promotion.  These interactive health education activities encourage children and families to make wise and informed healthy choices now and throughout their lives.
