Head selected to serve on CSG task force

March 31, 2019

Randy Head-2012The Council of State Governments (CSG), a nonpartisan, region-based forum that helps state officials shape public policy, recently selected State Senator Randy Head (R-Logansport) to serve as a two-year appointee on the CSG Healthy States: What Works National Task Force.

The task force is broken up into four subcommittees, which will convene several times between now and December 2020 to help develop comprehensive solutions to public policy issues facing states. The subcommittees are made up of 12 state leaders, including two co-chairs.

Head will serve on the Capacity, Preparedness and Resiliency Subcommittee, which will examine case studies and review recent state responses to health crises, including ways to prevent or reduce the impact of crisis through preventive care.

As a task force member, Head will also collaborate with fellow committee members to help subject-matter experts and private-sector partners identify and promote innovative approaches to state health policy challenges, while forging state-centric, problem-solving partnerships.

“It is a true honor to be named a member of this task force,” Head said. “As a state senator, I see a number of health public policy issues facing our state and country today, and I am eager to begin working with state leaders from across the United States to discuss and develop solutions.”

At its conclusion, the task force will publish a policy framework that will be distributed to all 50 states and six U.S. territories.

The first meeting will be held June 17-19, 2019, in Lexington, Kentucky.
