Congratulations and Farewell
CPCM’s Communications Specialist, Susan Smith, took a new position as Marketing and Communications Manager at Horizon Health Care in late May. An experienced communicator and content creator, Susan helped build CPCM’s presence and relationships with the media and stakeholders across the state. We will miss her expertise and her presence in the office, but wish her well in her new role!
SD ECCS Focus Groups & Strategic Planning
CPCM is one of 20 Awardees nationwide of the Federal health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) grant. The purpose of ECCS is to strengthen collaboration and coordination between systems that impact the healthy development, early learning and well-being of our state’s youngest children and their families. All 20 ECCS Awardees are seeking to better understand the landscape of their state’s comprehensive early childhood system.
As part of the SD ECCS team’s efforts, Sage Project Consultants has been contracted to conduct a “Systems Asset and Gap Analysis” (SAGA) and to facilitate the ECCS Strategic Planning process. To date, Sage has conducted a meta-analysis of existing needs assessments and strategic plans that impact our state’s youngest children and their families, and will conduct focus groups with content experts in June and July to review their findings. If you are a content expert in one of the following areas, particularly as it relates to the wellbeing of Prenatal-3 year-olds, and would like to participate in an ECCS focus group, please email [email protected]: Healthcare, Dental, Disabilities, Behavioral Health, Childcare, Prenatal and Parenting Education, Legal/Safety, and Cultural, Social or Economic Supports for Families.
