The School of Public Policy's leadership series spotlighting professionals with careers in public policy will feature Alina Salganicoff, senior vice president and the director of women’s health policy at Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF), a nonprofit organization that conducts nonpartisan policy analysis, polling, and journalism on national health issues.
Salganicoff will join the “Policy Profiles” series to discuss her work at KFF. She focuses on health policies of importance to women throughout their lifespans, emphasizing coverage and access challenges facing underserved women and sexual and reproductive health. Widely regarded as an expert on women's health policy, Dr. Salganicoff has written and lectured extensively on a broad range of issues ranging from maternity care and reproductive health services to aging and long-term care. Over her career, she has served on federal, state, and nonprofit advisory committees, including the National Academy of Sciences’ committees on abortion quality, sexually transmitted infections, and women’s health research, as well as the IOM committee that issued recommendations for the preventive services for women that must be covered under the ACA. Dr. Salganicoff continues to be involved in preventive services policy and is a member of the advisory panel of ACOG’s Women’s Preventive Services Initiative (WPSI) and Power to Decide's public policy advisory group.
