What Is HealthConnect In The Early Years?

HealthConnect In The Early Years is a voluntary home visitation program focusing on health education, promotion and support to improve maternal health, pregnancy outcomes and child health and development. It is now recognized that a childís healthy development is dependent on a motherís health during pregnancy and the early years of a childís life. HealthConnect In The Early Years can help your family manage the challenges of a new baby and establish a healthy foundation for the future.

HealthConnect In The Early Years is a part of the HealthConnect program spearheaded by The Children's Trust. HealthConnect is a comprehensive, three-tier, quality-driven health initiative created to promote healthier living and unify the fragmented health services in our community. The goals of HealthConnect are to:

  • improve access and use of quality health services
  • improve health awareness and behaviors through education
  • improve infant, child and adolescent health and development
  • facilitate community, environmental and lifestyle changes

HealthConnect has three major components: HealthConnect In The Early Years, HealthConnect In Our Community and HealthConnect In Our Schools. Each component utilizes a team approach to connect the children of Miami-Dade County to health services.

See our Success. Throughout the many years of the program, the HCITEY has ensured that programmatic goals are met and/or surpassed. Read here to see our latest progress for the 2012-2013 fiscal year.
