At United States of Care, we utilize the reputation and credability of our leadership councils combined with the incredible expertise of our staff to not only develop smart policy but get it passed into law. This work is critical to millions of people, but it is also hard. That is why it is wonderful to work at USofCare as the organization supports its employees to be able to work at the necessary high level to get things done.

I had shied away from working in the health policy space because I didn’t see my role. Now, at USofCare, I see how my expertise is so relevant, needed, and appreciated.
