Delaware State Health Improvement Steering Committee

A Steering Committee has been established to oversee the SHIP. The mission of the Steering Committee is to:

  • Assure an ongoing process to coordinate and monitor plans intended to improve the health of Delawareans;
  • Identify gaps in those plans; and
  • Advocate for intervention, accordingly.

The Steering Committee is comprised of the following individuals (affiliation in parentheses):

  • Gerard Gallucci (Delaware Department of Health and Social Services);
  • Mary Kate Mouser (Nemours Health & Prevention Services);
  • Karyl Rattay (Delaware Department of Health and Social Services);
  • Jill Rogers (Delaware Health Care Commission);
  • Lisa Schieffert (Delaware Healthcare Association);
  • Paul Silverman (Delaware Department of Health and Social Services); and
  • Michelle Taylor (United Way of Delaware).

This committee will oversee the Action Cycle of the SHIP.  In this capacity, the Steering Committee will establish the following:

  • What products should be generated from the development and implementation of the action plans designed by the SHIP Subcommittees; and
  • How the evaluation of the overall Action Cycle will be carried out.

In addition, the Steering Committee will also:

  • Assist, review, and provide feedback on the action plans designed by each of the SHIP Subcommittees;
  • Make available the goals and objectives upon which the SHIP Subcommittees will develop their action plans;
  • Elucidate whether any opportunities to reduce duplication of efforts exist, particularly among action plans with similar intents and target populations but are designed by different SHIP Subcommittees;
  • Conduct the evaluation of the Action Cycle; and
  • Serve as the primary source of communication to external stakeholders on all aspects of the State Health Improvement Plan and State Health Improvement Process.
