The Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program is pleased to announce that Maureen Henry will join the National Program Office as Deputy Director for Program.
Maureen has 20 years of cross-disciplinary experience in health policy, quality improvement, performance measurement, and complex patient populations. As a 2012-2013 Health and Aging Policy Fellow, Maureen worked as a healthcare staffer in Virginia Senator Mark Warner’s Washington, DC office, where she met with constituents in DC and Virginia and assisted with negotiating and drafting the Care Planning Act of 2013. Most recently, Maureen was a Senior Program Officer with the National Academy of Medicine, where she served as Study Director for the Global Roadmap for Healthy Longevity.
As HAPF Deputy Director for Program, Maureen will contribute to developing program engagement opportunities and mentoring Fellows as they pursue their policy work throughout the course of the year. Maureen’s arrival expands our team’s capacity to support our growing community of nearly 200 Health and Aging Policy Fellows. With Maureen’s focus on current Fellows, Deputy Director Kathy Pike will shift the concentration of her efforts to enhancing our alumni engagement opportunities.
Maureen will also be joining the team at the Columbia Robert N. Butler Aging Center’s International Longevity Center (ILC-USA), which was founded in 1990 with the purpose of educating individuals on how to live longer, healthier, and more meaningful lives, as well as to advise the public on how to maximize the benefits of increasing longevity in modern society.
