Spotlight on the New National Healthy Start Association Executive Director Stacey Cunningham
Our very own Stacey Cunningham, MSW, MPH was recently selected to be the next Executive Director of the National Healthy Start Association (NHSA) and lead the Association’s efforts to reduce infant mortality and provide support to Healthy Start programs nationwide. After a national search, Stacey from among several qualified candidates was chosen for her passion, commitment and expertise in addressing the needs of women, children and families. NHSA President Cynthia Dean stated “We are so pleased to welcome Stacey to NHSA. She brings expertise, energy and enthusiasm to our work as well as a great dedication and commitment. Her experience with AMCHP will serve her well as she leads our association and its members forward.” Prior to joining NHSA, Stacey was Associate Director for Women’s and Infant Health at AMCHP and worked with our Women’s Health, Preconception Health, Data and Assessment, and Infant Mortality programs. AMCHP is excited for Stacey and her new role but we are also sad to see her leave our team to which she contributed a great deal in the two years she was with us. Please join us in congratulating Stacey on her new leadership position. And she won’t be far away – NHSA is headquartered in the same office suite as AMCHP here in Washington, so it is just a short move down the hall!
