The Gulf States Health Policy Coalition unites community members, partner organizations, and service providers to collaborate, strengthen our collective voice, and build capacity for health policy research impact and improved health outcomes. Members meet monthly in four locations (Bayou La Batre, AL; Birmingham, AL; Hattiesburg, MS; and Gulfport/Biloxi, MS) to address a range of health policy issues, including financial literacy, education, active transportation, school wellness, health literacy, maternal and infant care, and healthy foods, among others.
