Our Values

Our values are how we work internally and externally, what we hold up and celebrate, and what we are constantly striving for and aspiring to be as an organization.

  • People-Centered: Everything we do is centered around people: we work to solve the biggest problems in health care by listening, inviting new and different perspectives, and grounding our approach in the people affected by the system. Diverse voices and experiences, inside and outside of USofCare, matter and deserve to be heard. 
  • Culture of Care: Our mission of health and well-being extends to all of our relationships.  We approach our relationships – internally and externally – by recognizing, respecting, and valuing the whole person and we care first about each other’s humanity. We know that part of caring for each other is providing and receiving thoughtful, direct feedback.
  • Innovative Problem Solvers: We tackle big, complicated problems by being innovative, looking for alternative approaches, and adjusting current thinking in new ways. We thrive on finding solutions to challenges and approach them with curiosity, determination and creativity. We collaborate because we know that there is power in the number of minds and diversity of perspectives in tackling big problems. 
  • Adaptability: We know that not everything goes according to plan. We approach our work with flexibility and adaptability by embracing uncertainty, celebrating change, and being excited about the unknown. We balance thoughtful preparation with the need for timely execution.  We believe that being nimble and action-oriented is part of making a real impact. 
  • Accountability: We approach all of our work and partnerships with intentionality and preparedness.  We expect all of our teams and co-workers to contribute fully, take initiative, and appropriately seek input from others.  We believe in teamwork, direct communication, and that we each have a responsibility to support each other to get to the best outcome.


We offer paid internships for Fall, Spring and Summer semesters.

Our interns are part of our team, with substantive projects and deliverables. Our interns gain hands-on, practical work and project experience, working closely with staff in achieving our objectives, while making connections with experts in the health care field. Interns are provided and encouraged to take advantage of local health care, educational, and networking events, and to bring that content back to share with our team. Our interns are paid and play a key role in supporting all departments within United States of Care including policy, external affairs, communications, operations, and public engagement.

I am passionate about working at United States of Care because we bring so many different approaches and experts to the table. We’re focused on solving problems, we’re focused on the future, and we’re focused on innovative ideas that we can be developing and helping states pursue.

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.
