Health Services Advisory Committee
The Health Services Advisory Committee (HSAC) is an advisory group
that brings together staff, parents, and local health care providers to
talk about the planning operation and evaluation of the health services
in the Head Start and Early Head Start program. By bringing together
health professionals from the community we can better meet the needs of
children and families in our program and identify ways we can help meet
the needs of the community at large. The HSAC will:
- Assist in identifying ongoing sources of continuous, accessible health care
- Provide guidance on the provision of health and nutrition services to the children and families enrolled in our programs
- Establish and review policies and procedures for responding to medical and dental health emergencies
establish ongoing collaborative partnerships with community
organizations to make it easier for children and families to access
- Be a resource to staff in their area of expertise to support service for HS/EHS children
- Participate in the annual program self-assessment
HSAC membership includes HS/EHS parents, local providers, HS/EHS staff
and community volunteers. The group meets twice a year in April and
October at the main SCCAP office in Bloomington at 1502 W. 15th Street.
Why Should you join the local HSAC? As
a Head Start parent, joining the HSAC your voice will be heard on the
issues that are important to HS and EHS children in the area of health,
including nutrition, medical, mental and dental care. As local
health services providers, joining our HSAC is a way of connecting with
the members of your community to provide the best and most appropriate
services to your clients. The HSAC provided you with a forum to
communicate your views and concerns about issues that affect the
services you provide. For more information, contact the Health and Nutrition Service Coordinator at (812) 339-3447, ext. 314 or email email@example.com.

Parent Involvement is essential to the success of the Head Start program. Parents affect almost every aspect of a child's life: self-esteem, health, values, behavior, readiness for school and success in life. Because parents have so much at stake, they have a lot to offer to the Head Start program serving their children. Parents are encouraged to take an active role in their child’s education by volunteering in the classrooms, participating in family activities and events, and providing valuable feedback to the program.
