The Maternal Wellness Program held a strategic workshop on Friday in Cape Girardeau, working with various Missouri health organizations.

Group activities were provided to health professionals, developing strategies to eliminate healthcare access barriers. 

Serving five counties in the Missouri Bootheel region, the program was established to fill gaps in healthcare for women between the ages of 15 and 44.

Maternal Wellness Health Coach, Tracy Morrow, said she was very happy with the turnout. 

"Everyone is concerned about the healthcare in the Bootheel, so everyone is really engaged in the activities that are happening," Morrow said.

The Maternal Wellness Program states that it will assist organizations with health coach training, resource development and improvement practices.
