About Healthy St. Lucie
The Healthy St. Lucie Coalition brings together diverse organizations and individuals to improve the well-being of our residents. Healthy St. Lucie has more than 20 organizations and community representatives that formed the non-profit in June of 2015.
In partnership with the Florida Department of Health in St. Lucie County, the Coalition conducts a health assessment every 3-5 years to evaluate the existing strategic plan and make changes for the next Community Health Improvement Plan by resetting priorities and identifying actions to be taken to improve resident health. The Coalition then guides the process to ensure that the objectives laid out in the plan are met.
Sub-committees implement the impacting strategies and evaluate progress in their associated priority areas. These include:
- Breastfeeding Workgroup
- Physical Activity Committee
- Worksite Wellbeing Council
- Age Friendly Workgroup
