What area(s) of healthcare do you have experience in?

I am a current Carlson MBA student with a Medical Industry Leadership specialization. My research has focused primarily on the federal component of health insurance and the evolution of Medicaid and Medicare.

What are you excited to learn more about?

I am excited to learn more about the state of healthcare and the role of local organizations in health insurance and innovation.

In your opinion, what is the biggest healthcare challenge?

One of the biggest health insurance challenges in my opinion is the dynamic environment of health policy. Without a clear direction for the future, it is extraordinarily difficult to create solid forward-thinking plans.

What are you working on?

I am currently researching the prospective use of Cartilagen as a routine preventative measure for the aging population. My team and I hope to asses the capacity for this technology to decrease long-term healthcare costs by reducing more expensive interventions at a later phase.
