Riley County Perinatal Coalition

What Is the RCPC?

The Riley County Perinatal Coalition is made up of individuals and organizations that impacts the health of mothers and their infants in Riley and Pottawatomie Counties.

The coalition creates a community-wide collaborative that aims to increase or improve the tools necessary for improving maternal health and decreasing infant morbidity and mortality.

The coalition creates an environment for healthy moms and healthy babies, right here in Riley County, and The Women's Health Group P.A. is proud to be associated with it. Contact us today for more details on the Riley County Perinatal Coalition.
