Giving a voice to those who live in medically underserved areas of the state, Governor Tim Kaine has appointed Nancy Stern, CEO of the Eastern Shore Rural Health System and former Board President of the Virginia Primary Care Association (VPCA) to serve on the Health Reform Commission.

The Commission is composed of a distinguished yet diverse group of leading voices from all facets of both the public and private sectors to recommend effective ways to reform and strengthen healthcare in Virginia. According to Governor Kaine, “Ensuring access to quality healthcare that is safe and affordable is one of the most fundamental commitments we have to our citizens.
