THRIVE BY FIVE WORKING GROUP
Thrive by Five's main goals include collaboration and coordination of existing efforts to address perinatal health and wellness and early childhood development and education. In order to connect the vision of Thrive by Five to work currently in action, Thrive by Five convened an advisory group of agencies and organizations that work to identify top issue areas and trends, significant gaps in the healthcare and education system that serve as barriers for families, and examples of innovation and positive outcomes at the intersection of the two systems. In addition to providing thought-partnership, the Thrive by Five working group helps to ensure that the work of the office is executed effectively.
