Q: What kind of work does your company do in 340B and what makes it stand out?
I specialize in providing legal services, particularly litigation support, for 340B hospitals and clinics and their stakeholders. I offer a client focus combined with a deep understanding of the 340B program and the challenges and opportunities it offers for hospitals and clinics.
Q: Why did you choose to work in the 340B space?
I was and remain compelled by the mission of 340B hospitals and clinics to support public health and to provide healthcare to the most vulnerable patients. In my career, I have served as a state and federal prosecutor and as the leader of nonprofit organizations, but putting my legal experience to use to assist 340B hospitals and clinics feels deeply satisfying.
Q: What do you feel is your most significant contribution to the 340B world or to a 340B customer/client?
I conceived of and helped to found Community Voices for 340B, a 501c3 educational nonprofit dedicated to educating and engaging the public around support for the 340B program and the hospitals and clinics that serve their communities.
Q: What advice do you have for a young professional who has recently launched a career in the 340B space?
Take time to understand the myriad facets of the US healthcare network, the players, and their motivations. Understanding where a person or entity “sits” will help inform where they “stand.” There are no adversaries in public health—only friends and potential friends. Learn to appreciate that a “no” only means “not now.” Today’s setbacks are merely setting the stage for tomorrow’s successes.
