Steve Shuman: Thank you for joining us in a conversation to explore ways to foster health manager network leaders. Health manager networks are more likely to be sustained when there is shared leadership. Today, the National Center on Health will speak with leaders from two health manager networks. Their experiences may provide all of us some insight into ways networks can foster leadership. My name is Steve Shuman. I've been working in public health and early childhood for over years.
Health manager networks promote improvement by building relationships among those in similar positions across Head Start and Early Head Start programs. These networks are more likely to be sustained when there is shared leadership. Three leaders, Rashanda Jenkins from Virginia, and Eric Vaughn and Peggy Kelly from Kansas, describe ways their state Head Start Associations foster health manager network leaders.
