Welcome to the Mississippi Gulf Coast Youth Health Coalition

We are a public/private partnership actively working to address priority health issues of youth on the MS Gulf Coast. Formed in 2013, we have selected Childhood Obesity as our first initiative.

To help combat this serious health epidemic, the Coalition offers Let’s Go! Gulf Coast, a program about healthy eating and active living for Gulf Coast children, their families, and the communities in which they live, learn, work and play (www.letsgogulfcoast.org). In addition, the Coalition partners with the University of Southern Mississippi to conduct childhood obesity-related research.

As you take a moment to complete this membership form, consider how you would like to become involved. You will receive an email confirming receipt of your application and additional notification when your application has been approved.

Thank you for your interest in joining the Coalition. Together, we can make a difference!
