Singing River Health System is proud to be a founding member of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Youth Health Coalition, whose first initiative is to target childhood obesity. This program, called Let’s Go! Gulf Coast, is all about healthy eating and active living for Mississippi Gulf Coast children, their families, and the communities in which they live, learn, work and play!
To further our commitment, Singing River Health System has taken the partnership challenge to become a Let’s Go! Gulf Coast partner site.
