Linda Goler Blount, MPH, to Join ICER Governance Board

March 20, 2023

Linda Goler Blount, MPH, has been elected to join the governance board of the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review. Blount has worked in health policy and is currently the president of the Black Women’s Health Imperative. She has built a career on addressing health disparities, especially those disproportionately affecting Black women and girls.

According to Blount, “Health technology assessment (HTA) often serves as a filter through which evidence is judged and given context for policymakers’ decisions about pricing, access, and payment. It’s important to continue to examine how to include diverse voices in the patient community, how to interpret data, and how to help highlight opportunities to address the disparities in access and outcomes that persist in our health care system. ICER’s mission is an important one, and I look forward to advising the organization on efforts to create a more just and equitable US health system.”
