New HHS Policy Analyst Joins AMCAMC is excited to announce that Emily Babcock will join its Intergovernmental Services team on Monday, February 12, as the new Health and Human Services Policy Analyst. She joins the association after nearly a decade as a senior policy analyst at the Texas Medical Association where she worked on public health policy issues on behalf of more than 50,000 physicians.
She’s moving to Minnesota after 14 years in Austin, Texas, in part to be closer to family. She grew up in South Dakota and attended the University of Minnesota Twin Cities, where she received her bachelor’s in Journalism. After college, she worked as a print and radio reporter before shifting to public health policy. She earned a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
Emily believes in the power of good policy and is eager to get to know Minnesota’s counties and work on issues to protect the health of Minnesotans.
