Sally Baggett facilitates continuous quality improvement to strengthen evidence-based home visiting programs. She brings decades of experience fostering creative collaborations and integrating early childhood home visitation services and behavioral health services into primary health care systems to enhance services for young children and their families.
Baggett is a member of EDC’s Home Visiting – Improvement Action Center Team (HV-ImpACT), which provides training and technical assistance—including site visits, webinars, and communities of practice—to Federal Home Visiting Program grantees. In all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five territories, HV-ImpACT is working to ensure at-risk pregnant mothers and families have the resources they need to raise children who are physically, socially, and emotionally healthy and ready to learn.
Baggett conducts training programs, briefings, and webinars on integrated early childhood home visitation programs for parents, early childhood and primary health care providers, funders, and advocates at the local, state, regional and national levels. She is a charter member of the Home Visiting Applied Research Collaborative Council, and contributed to the case study Coordinating Comprehensive Healthcare with Home Visits for New Families.
Previously, Baggett was Director of Patient and Family Support Services for Carolina Health Centers, Inc., pioneering and administering an integrated continuum of early childhood home visitation and primary care medical services to meet the needs of families in a seven-county area. As a member of the Centers’ senior management team, she guided continuous quality improvement processes for several divisions of the organization, and provided technical consultation services to state and local South Carolina direct service and evaluation providers.
Baggett received her BA from Furman University.
