Parkway Forms Coalition for Community Health

Parkway has been awarded a five-year, $500,000 grant from the Missouri Foundation for Health to build a new coalition, called the Parkway Coalition for Community Health. 

The purpose of the coalition is to work with partners from all segments of the community to stop risky behavior and improve health among young people. The coalition will work to reduce underage drinking, marijuana use and risk of suicide among our youth.  

Community members are welcome to attend coalition meetings, which are from 3:30 to 5 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month at the Parkway ISC, 12657 Fee Fee Rd., 63146. The next meeting is Tuesday, April 2.

For more information, contact Ken McManus, coalition director, by email or at (314) 415-7015. The coalition website is still under construction but already has some good resources and information posted.
