St. Pete Champions Healthy Communities
Anyone who’s ever organized a dinner party has had a small taste of what it takes to meet disparate interests. The selection and planning process can be a painstaking “she-eats-this-but-is-allergic-to-that” journey. Okay, imagine every single guest has these different, often life or death needs and now you have a taste of collaboration between multiple organizations.
St. Petersburg’s Healthy St. Pete initiative has taken on this feisty collaborative role as the mobilizing force of the newly formed Health360 program. Born out of the Florida Hospital system’s Food is Medicine campaign, Health360 provides a science-backed approach to community health change by connecting and strengthening existing programming from partners like Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.
