At Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States, serving the unmet needs of our local communities by pursuing equitable access to health care, community services, livable wage jobs, and affordable housing is part of our DNA. We are pleased to announce that our KPMAS Community Health has team has invested in a sponsorship to the National Minority Quality Forum (NMQF).
This sponsorship allows representatives from the KPMAS Community Health and Government Relations teams to participate at NMQF’s Corporate Roundtable. As part of this engagement, our teams will have the opportunity to shape and influence regional health equity related policies affecting our members and the communities we serve through interactions with members of Congress, state officials across the Mid-Atlantic.
The NMQF is a national non-profit organization that works with key stakeholders (including health-care providers and professionals, administrators, policy makers, payers, industry, community and faith-based organizations) to improve the delivery of optimal care to diverse populations with a focus in advancing health equity through three main areas: Data Analytics, Policy & Legislative Engagement, and Community Engagement.
This is fantastic. Are there opportunities for students to get involved in the KPMAS Community Health and Government Relations teams through an internship? If so, would they be granted access to the Corporate Roundtable?
Any additional information on this venture as well as information on opportunities for graduate-level students to get involved would be greatly appreciated.
