Medicaid Leadership Policy Academy 2014
Twenty-one state legislators from 14 states gathered in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 15-17, 2014, for a CSG-led Medicaid Leadership Policy Academy. Almost 50 percent of the attendees were chairs or vice-chairs of health committees in their home states. Nearly half were health care professionals outside their legislative duties.
The meeting was a follow-up to the Medicaid Policy Academies CSG has held in 2012, 2013, and 2014 for legislatos who have been newly elected to positions of leadership in the health policy arena or who have been identified by their colleagues as rising stars in health policy.
Managed care, tobacco cessation and mental health were issues of concentration for the 2014 Medicaid Leadership Policy Academy. Click here for the agenda. Click here for more information on attendees, speakers and sponsors or see the links provided below.
