Early childhood experiences affect health, achievement, and well-being throughout life. Launched in 2017, Healthy Futures is a ten-year strategy to improve the health and well-being of children ages 0-8 in the Greater Rochester area. At the heart of the Healthy Futures strategy is whole child health—supporting children’s physical, cognitive, social, and emotional health by fostering healthy relationships, ensuring safe environments, cultivating skills and competencies, and building healthy habits. Healthy Futures includes efforts to partner with parents, schools and providers; build organizational and systems capacity; and advocate for policy changes that better support whole child health in our community.
