Together our voices are louder and stronger
Since 1995, the California State Rural Health Association has been engaged in making sure that the needs and voices of rural Californians are expressed and heard! In February 2017, the Board of Directors voted to continue that tradition and add to an initiative to engage the many non health organizations and individuals that have great impact on rural health.
In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Ramiro Zúñiga, Vice President and Medical Director at Health Net and California Health and Wellness. His focus there is to ensure high-quality whole health care to the diverse communities served by both plans. Dr. Zúñiga, has received multiple awards for his clinical, teaching, and residency director roles. It was a pleasure to have him on the show.
Our conversation with Dr. Zúñiga spans a wide range of topics from an insider’s look at their innovative program, Bridging the Divide to how he and his team are navigating the challenges of serving 31 counties across California during a pandemic. Dr Zuniga also shares his insights into health equity and many helpful strategies for providing quality care for all Californians.
