Act Early Ambassadors: State, Territory, and Organizational Liaisons to CDC’s “Learn the Signs. Act Early”

The purpose of this project is to promote action and provide training in the state of Kansas regarding the CDC’s “Learn the Signs. Act Early” program (LTSAE). This includes assuring that partner agencies share a common agenda; measurement system; and indicators of success in relation to LTSAE. In addition, a dual focus on working together on mutually reinforcing activities and continuous communication assures commitment and collaboration. An additional outcome is to integrate the “Watch Me” materials with the LTSAE.
