Leigh Purvis, MPA, Director of Health Care Costs and Access in AARP’s Public Policy Institute, has been elected to the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review’s (ICER) Governance board. Also, Dr. Mark McClellan, founding Director of the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy at Duke University and former Commissioner of the FDA and Administrator of CMS, will be joining ICER’s Advisory Board.
“We are proud to announce this expansion of our boards with the addition of two leaders who have dedicated their careers to making the US health care system work better for patients,” said Steven Pearson, MD, MSc, President of ICER. “They share with us the sense that ICER’s role as an independent, objective source of evidence is critical to help support more transparent health care policy decisions. Together, their combined expertise and guidance will strengthen ICER’s ability to help the US health system provide high-value care that all Americans can afford.” Find out more about ICER’s Governance and Advisory Boards here.
