Jeanette Shea is retiring at the end of July.  She’s been with the Department for more than 20 years serving as a Program Manager,  Social Work Consultant, Section Chief then Office Chief for Women’s and Children’s Health and finally as the Assistant Director for Public Health Prevention for the last few years.  She’s has been involved in a number of important agency wide efforts including the development of the Empower program to increase health and wellness in child care, the development of the Marketing Committee to improve consistency  and quality of social media,  and most recently working with Behavioral  Health to support integration of primary care and behavioral health services.

Our plan is to fill the Assistant Director position before she leaves at the end of July so that there’s enough time for a smooth transition.  Make sure you wish her the best before she hits the road…  but something tells me she won’t be able to stay away from public health for long!
