Washington, D.C. — Andrea Ducas will be joining the Center for American Progress as vice president for Health Policy. In this role, she will coordinate CAP’s cross-cutting, organization-wide priority to strengthen health and lead the Health Policy team within the Inclusive Growth department.
Ducas has spent her career at the intersection of advancing policy and health systems change, with extensive experience in health care coverage and affordability. Prior to joining CAP, she was a senior program officer at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, where she developed more than $150 million in strategic grants and investments to transform health and health care systems in the United States. Earlier in her career, Ducas worked for the Center for Family Representation, a nonprofit law and policy organization in New York City. She also served as a visiting scholar with the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Ducas holds a master’s degree in health policy and management from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and a bachelor’s degree from Brown University.
“Andrea’s a proven innovator who has worked tirelessly to increase access to healthcare for all,” said Patrick Gaspard, president and CEO of the Center for American Progress. “At a time of skyrocketing costs, extremists policies that deny care to the vulnerable, and a technological revolution in health care data management, we’re thrilled to have Andrea’s transformational, essential leadership at CAP.”
