Welcome

Worcester Healthy Baby Collaborative

The collaborative has involved the work of more than 30 agencies, including the Worcester Department of Public Health, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the March of Dimes to reduce the rate of infant mortality and premature birth in the City of Worcester.

We meet quarterly to discuss various topics related to the health of Worcester infants. Our schedule can be found here.

For 2017 we're working a project to bring Baby Box distribution to Worcester.
