ABOUT THE HEALTHY FLORIDA - ST. PETE PROJECT
This project is a collaboration between Florida Voices for Health, Tampa Bay Healthcare Collaborative, & Community Health Coalition of St. Petersburg, & Florida Council of Churches.
More of South Pinellas residents experience bad health conditions when compared to other parts of the county and the state. We’ve seen this in communities like: Palmetto Park, Child’s Park, Jordan Park, Methodist Town, Melrose Mercy, Pine Acres, Cromwell Heights, Thirteenth Street Heights, Twinbrooks, Clam Bayou, Harbordale, Bartlett Park, and the Greater Pinellas Point neighborhoods.
These problems have gotten worse because communities of color in Pinellas have less access to health care and use preventative care less.
This has to change and can change. To fix the problem we need to better understand all of the things keeping people from getting and staying healthy.
You can help this project be successful and bring new life to St. Pete.
