Meet the Founders
I come from a family tradition of national service. For the past twenty years, I’ve brought that same passion for service to the goal of making healthcare work better in this country. Nothing gets me more excited than the opportunity to work with leaders in the industry to bring fresh insight and provocative ideas to the task of improving care for our citizens.
