    The HAC is comprised of professional health providers such as doctors, nutritionists, dentists, nurses and most importantly, parents.

    Roles and Responsibilities:

    The Health Advisory Board is required by the Head Start Program Performance Standards. It is designed to advise the Health Content Area concerning any health matter related to the Head Start Program. The Health Advisory Committee brings together staff, parents, and local health care providers to talk about the planning, operation, and evaluation of the health services. 

    Our Health Advisory Committee meets periodically throughout the school year to discuss problems and news in the health content area.   The committee includes health professionals from area organizations, Head Start employees in the health content area, and Onslow County Schools employees.
