Communities in the Cradle to Career Network are working to improve systems that impact youth and families. Share why one adjacent sector is important to you.

Most of my career has been focused on the health sector, and I often think about how the factors that drive inequities in health outcomes are the same ones that drive inequities in cradle-to-career outcomes. Working across sectors is thus critical to achieving equitable outcomes.
