Full Story

The Collier County Community Nook Project is a collaborative community-based program that aims to increase the number of women receiving early and regular prenatal care to prevent low birthweight babies, sudden unexpected infant death, premature babies, child abuse, and substance exposed newborns. The program is designed to promote prenatal care participation and encourage healthy behaviors during pregnancy through incentives and education.

With the increase in measles cases across the US, the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) is urging Floridians and visitors who have not been immunized to get vaccinated. Although measles was thought to be eradicated in the United States in 2000, the disease has reappeared in recent months in the form of outbreaks in several states. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines a measles outbreak as three or more cases. As of April 17, 2019, one measles case has been reported to FDOH.
