Funded through a grant from the Maternal Child Health Bureau, the IMPACT Project focuses on maternal and child health policies and programs for the benefit of all children and youth, including those with special health care needs and/or disabilities and their families.
Health is determined by many things. Social determinants of health play a big role in our health and wellbeing. But personal choices are also extremely important, and the role of families is powerful. Together with friends, families, communities, and health care providers, everyone has the chance for better health and well-being. Over time, small changes made by individuals and communities add up to great changes and improved health for not only ourselves, but our children and grandchildren.
The IMPACT website is a valuable resource for parents, educators, health care providers, and anyone interested in how to promote health and wellness at the individual, family, and community levels.
