Alumna Named Scholar in Health Policy Analysis
Yue Pui Chin, a 2010 alumna, was selected as one of five 2011 Summer Scholars of the Paul G. Rogers Memorial Health Policy Analysis and Advocacy Scholars Program. This internship program, which is part of the National Coalition on Health Care (NCHC), is designed to provide graduate and law students and alumni with an opportunity to engage actively in the health policy debate, learn about non-profit management, and have a hand in the formation and implementation of Americaís health policy.
During her academic career at UMDLaw, Ms. Chin completed a concentration in health law and worked as a student attorney in the Health Care Delivery and Child Welfare Clinic. She also provided legal assistance through Tompkins/Tioga Neighborhood Legal Services in Ithaca, NY..
Ms. Chin earned her undergraduate degree in biology and society at Cornell University, where she also completed a concentration in policy analysis and management. She has also served as an intern at the National Health Law Program where she researched state Medicaid provisions and worked on issues surrounding language interpreter services and culturally competent, patient-centered care.
The Paul G. Rogers Memorial Health Policy Analysis and Advocacy Scholars Program is named in honor of the NCHCís long time colleague and distinguished health care advocate Paul G. Rogers, co-chair of the organization from 1990-2008. Before becoming one of NCHCís founding chairmen, Mr. Rogers represented the 11th district of Florida in the U.S. Congress between 1955 and 1979, and he served as chair of the House Subcommittee on Health and the Environment from 1971-79 before joining the law firm of Hogan & Hartson.
The NCHC today is not only the nationís oldest, and most broadly representative non-partisan health alliance, but is also playing a critical role in the effort to achieve affordable, fiscally responsible, and sustainable health care for America.
