San Joaquin County Public Health Services has a new program, Mothers Invested in Baby/Madres Invertidas en Bebe (MI Baby/MI Bebe). The goal of the program is to decrease childhood obesity through support group sessions with mothers.
Sessions are provided for free in English and Spanish, through a First 5 San Joaquin grant. The program is open to mothers with children age five and younger in San Joaquin County. Topics include healthy eating and active living tips.
The MI Baby/MI Bebe program will be offered at three locations:
- San Joaquin General Hospital Healthy Beginnings Clinic at 500 W. Hospital Road, French Camp.
- San Joaquin General Hospital Healthy Beginnings Clinic at 1414 N. California St., Stockton.
- Lodi Memorial Education Department at 800 S. Lower Sacramento Road, Lodi.
