The Chairperson of the Kansas Health Policy Board will be stepping down.
Connie Hubbell announced Tuesday that she will leave the position in August of this year, when her appointment is scheduled to expire.
“Connie has performed a great service to the Board and to the agency," KHPA Executive Director Dr. Marcia Nielsen said in a statement. "She has expertly directed the Board’s activities since her appointment in August of 2005. Her passion for health reform has been an inspiration to everyone who has had the pleasure of working with her.”
Hubbell has served as the Senior Vice President for the Kansas Foundation for Medical Care since 2003. She will be leaving that position on July 31 to begin a lobbying practice. Hubbell also served as Kansas Secretary of Aging from 1999 to 2003.
During her tenure, Hubbell has worked on such issues as the development of KHPA’s 21-point Health Reform recommendations, the Data Consortium, and the agency’s budget and staffing.
