Dr. Baker was a political science professor at Jacksonville University for 28 years before retiring this spring.
“[The Coalition’s] overall goal is the reduction of the state’s high infant mortality and improvement of the lives of pregnant women and their families. Lofty goal, for sure. And darn admirable. Overseeing the Coalition activities is its board and chairman Stephen Baker, Ph.D., a teacher by trade who recently retired after more than two decades at JU.”
