Meet our Team: Christine Bechtel
Christine has spent her career shaping both public policies and on-the-ground practices that result in better health and care. She is a well-known consumer advocate and health care expert, having served in organizations like AARP, the National Partnership for Women & Families, and the American Health Quality Association.
She is a skilled leader and strategist with experience developing and overseeing complex projects, managing social impact campaigns funded by the nation's largest philanthropies, and developing innovative, real world solutions for health care challenges.
While not traveling for work, she enjoys the peace and focus of golf, as well as her rescue animals.
We asked Christine why she's so passionate about 3rd Conversation, and she responded:
"I believe deeply that patients, providers, and administrators have to change the health care system from the inside out – and creating meaningful human connections between us is the first step."
