A commitment to equity requires reflection, courage, power sharing, and accountability. This new episode of the Medicaid Leadership Exchange podcast explores what a commitment to equity means for Medicaid and how to put it into action. The episode features Medicaid leaders discussing the need for agency leadership to engage in self-observation and recognize bias when committing to advance equity within their agencies and for enrollees.
This episode is hosted by Gretchen Hammer, former Colorado Medicaid director and principal at the Public Leadership Group. She is joined by Mark Larson, former Vermont Medicaid director and senior vice president of leadership and capacity building at the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS); Jamye Chapman, policy initiative advisor at the Executive Department of Health Services at the Wisconsin Division of Medicaid Services and a current participant in CHCS’ Medicaid Pathways Program; and Dave Richard, deputy secretary for North Carolina Medicaid Division of Health Benefits.
Medicaid Leadership Exchange is a podcast series exploring priority topics for Medicaid leaders developed in partnership with NAMD and the Center for Health Care Strategies through support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
