NAC officially welcomes Jason Resendez as President and CEO. He will lead the organization’s research, policy, and innovation initiatives to build health, wealth, and equity for America’s 55 million family caregivers.
“For 26 years, NAC has been a relentless force in addressing these injustices through agenda-setting research that shines a necessary spotlight on the impacts of caregiving on families and communities, through the development of innovative practice improvements that help health systems better serve the complex needs of caregivers, and through advocacy that ensures caregivers are seen and heard in policymaking.
“In collaboration with a dynamic network of partners representing non-profit, corporate, and academic organizations and with the leadership of individual research experts and caregivers, NAC is primed for growth at a pivotal moment in our nation’s care history.
“I couldn’t be more excited to assume this role and to dedicate the next chapter of my career to ensuring that society honors the bonds of caregiving through bolder federal and private sector action. As my civil rights hero Dolores Huerta once told me, ‘We have the power, the people power, to make anything happen.’”
