The Medicaid Leadership Institute learning opportunity is enormous. With over 18 years’ experience in the Medicaid program, I was at first skeptical that I would benefit from the program, but my professional knowledge and my leadership and communication skills have expanded greatly as a result of the experience. If you’re accepted, you won’t be disappointed.
We are proud to support the professional development of these dedicated leaders whose work will be increasingly in the spotlight as Medicaid takes on an expanded responsibility for insuring Americans.
