This week, we are sad to say goodbye to our Policy Director, Dana Dunlap. Dana joined the Voices team last summer and brought with her a sunny disposition and can-do attitude. During her time with Voices, she has crafted our policy agenda and raised Voices’ profile on Capitol Square by increasing our presence in legislative discussions and committee hearings.
Her policy priorities have included supporting and promoting home visiting services by providing state-level advocacy, education, and resources—including the creation of a home visiting primer. She partnered with families and providers to encourage effective communication in the most recent transition of children with special health care needs to managed care. Dana has also continued Voices’ efforts to advance recommendations to improve Ohio’s EPSDT program and to increase developmental screenings.
Voices remains committed to these important initiatives which support children and families. Until the next policy director is selected, please contact Brandi Slaughter at email@example.com or (614) 940-4248 if you have questions or concerns. If you’d like to stay in touch with Dana you can reach her by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 330-322-8075.
We wish Dana the very best and encourage you to wish her well, too!
