Partners to Transform Health
Diana Mason One of the priorities that CEO Cheryl Sullivan and I have been following up on is to reach out to potential partners to advance the Academy's 2014–2017 Strategic Plan.

For example, earlier this summer, we met with Mary Wakefield, administrator of the Health Resources and Services Administration (and Academy fellow); Michael Lu and his colleagues at the Maternal Child Health Bureau of the US Department of Health and Human Services; and staff with the National Governor's Association.

Our conversations focused on opportunities to continue to influence the implementation of health care reform and to address the upstream factors that shape the health of people. These include the Academy initiatives that address these two aims, such as the work of Edge Runners that is so aligned with the goals of these entities that the discussions quickly extend to opportunities for collaboration.

We have been clear that we are not interested in duplicating others' efforts (unless such duplication would be fruitful) or spinning in place. Rather, we express our commitment to "moving the needle" on these two important priorities and welcome opportunities to partner with others to do so.

We continue to ask our Expert Panels to identify important strategic partnerships and appointments that could advance our work in these areas. No one organization can work in isolation and be effective. We seek to be an excellent partner in promoting the health of people. I welcome your thoughts on opportunities that we ought to consider. You can read the strategic plan or can e-mail me at Diana_Mason@aannet.org.
