Health Advisory Committee

WHY

One of Head Start’s objectives is to provide continuous and accessible health care for children and families. The Virginia Head Start Association Health Advisory Committee (VAHSA HAC) is comprised of health/nutrition services managers/coordinators, community partners, health professionals and mental health specialists, from Early Head Start/Head Start, programs and agencies from across the state.

WHAT

In this network, members gain knowledge, share expertise, network, ask questions and take information back to their programs to enhance their local program’s Health Advisory Committee. By collaborating with regional, state and local organizations Head Start’s success in improving the health outcomes for the children and families is maximized. Helping the program establish ongoing collaborative partnerships
with community organizations makes it easier for children and families to access health services in their local area.

WHEN

The VAHSA HAC meets quarterly to provide support, resources and receive guidance on health, safety and nutrition for young children and families.
