Florida Health Celebrates 25 Years of Early Steps

Full Story
Tallahassee, Fla.—Today, Governor Scott recognized the Florida Department of Health’s Children’s Medical Services Early Steps Program for its 25 years of providing early intervention services. Early Steps serves infants and toddlers, birth to thirty-six months with disabilities, developmental delays, or children with a physical or mental condition known to create a risk of developmental delay.

To better understand the problems facing our community, a health assessment is completed every three years. Led by the Live Well Partnership for a Healthy Community with support from the Florida Department of Health in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties, the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) includes input from residents, an analysis of data on chronic disease and the leading causes of death in our community, and discussions with community leaders to identify the most pressing health issues. More information about our current CHNA, and where we are in the assessment process, can be found on the LiveWellNWFL.org website.
