As the CEO and Executive Director for the Pittsburgh Business Group on Health, I leverage education, advocacy, and partnerships to best serve our business members and their greater communities. Every day, we tackle challenges head-on to improve employee health, reduce employer health care costs, and secure a brighter future for health care.
Investigating shortfalls within the health benefits ecosystem has led me to recognize the enormous potential in employer collaboration to make large-scale decisions and ultimately transform the reality of health care. This potential is why I value deliberate, intentional, and empathetic relationships on both a local and national level. These relationships support my proactive efforts to address the impacts of accelerated consolidation and heightened competition in the health sector.
PBGH is a case study and benchmark for coalitions across the country. With a business model that allows others to leverage PBGH’s innovative infrastructure, we strive to be a resource for other coalitions as health care continues to evolve.
