Walk and Talk with Moms Back

Share

First Walk:  Tuesday, May 2nd 10:00 A.M. – 11:00 A.M.

Stratford Seawall

Lace up those sneakers, break out the stroller, invite friends, family and neighbors to take a walk and enjoy the fresh air, beautiful water views, and vintage cottages and homes.

Parents Place, Stratford YMCA, Stratford Health Department, and The Baldwin Center invite moms and caregivers of infants to join us for a 5-week walking series every Tuesday during the month of May.

Each week we will be at a different location to give local residents an opportunity to explore the Town of Stratford. Come with your child in a stroller or backpack and walk with some of our community healthcare professionals to learn about health topics relating to your infants. All questions are welcomed!

We are proud to have Public Health Nurse Bernice Bova, Health Program Associate Alivia Coleman, Environmental Health Supervisor Maureen Whelan, Health Program Assistant Veronica Cortes, and Pediatrician Louis Hart, M.D. These healthcare professionals will touch on topics such as Infant Growth and Development, Immunizations, Emergency Preparedness, Food Safety, and Lead Prevention.

“This is a fun way to ask questions, get tips and squeeze in some exercise all at the same time with your community partners” says Andrea Boissevain, Health Director.

“We hope to rally more pediatricians to join community-based programs like these to help understand and get in touch with the people we serve” said Louis Hart, M.D., Assistant Professor and Medical Director, office of Health Equity, Yale New Haven Health System. We look forward to seeing new moms and caregivers of infants.
