Feb 03 2013 Irvine Leadership Award profile: Jeff Oxendine

Jeff Oxendine, associate dean for public health practice at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, is one of six California leaders honored with the 2013 James Irvine Foundation Leadership Award. With health reform taking full effect in January 2014, California faces a serious shortage of health professionals, as more than six million newly insured state residents start seeking the care they need. The shortage will likely hit hardest in low-income and racially diverse communities, where the number of currently uninsured people is highest and provider shortages already exist. Oxendine is working at multiple levels—local, regional and statewide—to meet this challenge head-on. He believes that a robust, diverse health workforce is essential to California’s ability to provide access to quality, affordable health services and meet the needs of its growing, aging and increasingly diverse population.
