Insights and Actions for Health Care Success
Doctor of Public Health, George Washington University
As a practicing Physician Assistant, public health educator and administrator, FQHC Director of Operations and clinical consultant I’ve learned that community health care centers deliver the best outcomes when
- appropriate resources are identified and utilized;
- effective policies and procedures are defined and put into practice; and
- all stakeholders – patients, clinicians, staff and leadership – feel empowered.
With Freeborne Health Advising I can leverage my experience as a community health center executive, a practicing clinician, a HRSA OSV consultant, and a public health educator and thought leader to positively impact a wide range of centers and clinics throughout the US. I can help prepare your community health center to be in full compliance for an HRSA operational site visit, pursue grants that extend your center’s reach and hone your center’s policies, procedures and practices to achieve consistently superior outcomes.
