Kelsey Brykman on the intersection of Primary Care and Health Equity
August 12, 2022
Suzanne calls Kelsey Brykman, Senior Program Officer at the Center for Health Care Strategies to talk about the intersection of primary care and health equity.
Kelsey describes her work under the Promoting Health Equity through Primary Care Innovation in Medicaid Managed Care Project, working with a variety of state Medicaid agencies Kelsey and her team help them think through what levers they have for advancing health equity through primary care.
“It’s because primary care is so foundational both as an entry point into the health system and also as, ideally, as the way in which patients develop longitudinal relationships with their care team that it is a critical piece of advancing health equity.”
