Children’s Health Care

Maternal and Child Health Committee seeks to promote comprehensive community health improvement processes by:

  • promoting positive maternal, child, adolescent, and family health outcomes in Erie County;
  • enhancing positive youth development and coordination of health services for youth; and
  • enhancing quality of life, prevention, and management of disability and infectious and chronic disease through coordinated efforts. We seek to empower families toward positive decisions by supporting their active membership in their community in order to promote the personal, physical, and social well being of all citizens. This will be accomplished through assessing need, developing resources, and coordinating services
