What are you currently working on that you are most excited about? How do you think it will drive improvements to health and healthcare in the community?
I am currently working on our new wellness program, which is a grassroots model, “Kelley Kickstart” which is designed specifically for our workforce and industry. This gives me an opportunity to influence, and educate our workforce being well engaged in their wellness, so if/when there is a need then he or she will be armed to be a smarter consumer of their healthcare. It excites me to see the shift in the way our workforce/members see healthcare; to drive change, you must change the mindset.
