Lehan has been placed as a research assistant at the Center for Children & Families, part of the Health Policy Institute at the McCourt School. Her research, alongside Senior Fellow Tricia Brooks, focuses on the Children’s Health Insurance Program and Medicaid quality improvement.
“Everyone has the right to obtain high-quality health care without barriers,” said Lehan, who works in business development and strategic relationships at a leading health care company while attending McCourt. Since coming to the Hilltop, Lehan has been inspired to use her career and education “to make health care more accessible and affordable for all.”
“I am so appreciative of the Foundation’s mission,” she said, “which aligns with my perspective of improving health care through addressing whole person health. I’m very excited to keep learning from this opportunity and to create meaningful change in health policy.”
