Early learning-health connections [Executive summary]

Considerable state momentum exists to develop or enhance systems to link child health (including mental health) with early learning. Late in 2014, pediatrician Jill Sells interviewed representatives of the nine states that received Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge (ELC) grants and chose to address health promotion. This chapter describes the work of these nine states: California, Delaware, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, and Vermont. States indicated they focused on health promotion in the ELC for various reasons: a previous health focus in the state; prior experience developing cross-sector networks; and the leadership of pediatricians in public health.
