Healthier Generations Project (HGP)
Despite major advancements in medicine and technology, far too many babies in Georgia are born too soon and too small, which increases the likeihood of the infant not making it to his or her first birthday.
Among metro area counties, Clayton has one of the highest infant mortality rates. In response, the Clayton County Board of Health (CCBOH) launched it's Healithier Generations project, designed to create A Healthier Clayton in One Generation through strengthening families with the use of eductaion, home visitation, case management and referrals.
