Children’s Health Initiatives

Because there is a strong link between health and well‐being early in life and health and well‐being later in life, HealthPartners is working to improve the health of children from prenatal through childhood through an initiative called Building Blocks. The three main areas of focus are promoting early brain development, providing family‐centered care and strengthening communities. This long‐term initiative will begin with 10 priorities, including promoting breastfeeding, decreasing teen pregnancies and promoting drug- and alcohol-free pregnancies.
