It Takes A Village Program: Giving Our Babies the Best Chance

In Utah, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander babies are dying before their first birthday at almost twice the rate of other groups. But we can work together to change that. Our "It Takes a Village" program is a 4-week course that meets once a week, providing knowledge and resources on infant and maternal health to all caregivers - whether you're a current or future parent, aunt, uncle, or grandparent. After all, as the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child. 

Please stay tuned for updates on upcoming workshops. 

The workshops are currently only offered in English. If you have any questions regarding the workshops, please contact Tima Clawson at or via phone 385-419-0031.


We do not currently have any workshops scheduled at this time, we will update our site once workshops become available. Thank you!
