In 2015, Jacksonville Baby Buggy Walk in the Park brought together families, staff and members of the community to participate in a walk with babies in buggies in an effort to encourage pregnant and postpartum women and their families to participate in healthy activities. There was also a health fair and a book giveaway (thanks to San Marco Bookstore for providing a discount!). The Jacksonville Public Library provided a reading corner. The walk, which is supported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Minority Health and other partners, takes place during National Infant Mortality Awareness Month each September.
Thank you to our 2015 sponsors, Unity Plaza Jacksonville, Brooks Rehabilitation, Molina Healthcare and Sunshine Health.
