Family Health Coalition

Optimizing the health and well-being of women, infants and families

In 1987, the Community Service Council formed the Family Health Coalition (originally named the Tulsa Area Coalition on Perinatal Care) to address access to prenatal care and poor birth outcomes. The Family Health Coalition is committed to optimizing the health and well-being of women, infants, children and families through broad-based community engagement and advocacy within a local system of health education, prevention services and community support to eliminate health disparities.
