Reflections on Recent Lessons in Advancing Health Equity During a Public Health Emergency
featuring Adaeze Enekwechi, PhD, MPP


As we shared last week, thanks to the generous sponsorship of the National Association of Health Services Executives (NAHSE), AUPHA is delighted to announce a special keynote presentation scheduled to be held on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, 1:00 – 2:15pm eastern time.

The presentation will feature  Adaeze Enekwechi, PhD, MPP, a healthcare executive and leading voice in health policy including payment, equity and evidence-based policy making. She is committed to building a healthcare system that evolves beyond its current piecemeal, short-term approach to big solutions that meaningfully improve access to equitable, value-driven health care for all Americans.

Dr. Enekwechi most recently served as the President of IMPAQ, a policy research and implementation company focused on health, workforce, and advanced analytics. She successfully led the company through an M&A process and successful acquisition in May 2020. In her role as President, she provided strategic oversight of all research, technical assistance, and advanced analytics services across all policy and program areas at IMPAQ. She also led the organization’s work on health equity, advancing ideas and engagement with policymakers, payers, and providers to meaningfully improve quality, costs, and outcomes.

Sincere thanks to NAHSE for making this presentation possible.
