Current Public-Health Related Activities:
As a lender with a national Community Development Financial Institution, my work focuses on providing capital to nonprofit agencies that operate primarily in the health and human services sectors. These agencies provide primary and behavioral health care, HIV/AIDS services, and case management for medically underserved populations, among other things. I work with the management teams of these community-based organizations to understand their business models, competitive pressures, policy and funding environments, etc. I also make investments in Pay for Success projects that seek to address public health issues in targeted populations. Examples include homelessness, substance abuse, and teen pregnancy.
