Stacy Stanford, UHPP policy analyst, Featured in Pod Save America
UHPP is so glad that Stacy had the opportunity to speak to the Pod Save America audience last week about Utah’s Medicaid expansion roller coaster, public comments, advocacy, and the fact that it is so important to keep sick people at the center of all health policy conversations.

First of Three Rural Road Trips
The policy team will be headed around the state over the coming months to help educate our partners about Medicaid expansion and the pending changes to it. UHPP visited Logan Regional Hospital and various clinics and organizations that serve low-income clients. We presented at the Midtown Community Clinic in Ogden to several groups working with Medicaid and uninsured clients. We toured CAPSA, a domestic violence shelter and resource organization. We also met with many community leaders along the way.

We're excited to continue reaching out statewide!
