New Children’s Health Leadership Development Program Announced

The Annie E. Casey Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and The Atlantic Philanthropies are proud to introduce the Children’s Health Leadership Network, a new leadership development program to strengthen the field of state-based advocates for children’s health policy. With funding from these three foundations over the course of several 16-month cohorts, this program will build a powerful collective of nearly 100 advocates serving throughout the country in leadership capacities on behalf of our nation’s children.

This network of strong, adaptive and diverse leaders with experience in policy, advocacy and strategic communications will be uniquely positioned to inform policy and implementation that puts health and well-being of children and families first. Selection of the first class of up to 15 leaders will take place in the fall of 2015, with the leadership seminars beginning in January 2016.
