What We Don’t Know CAN Hurt Us
Q & A with Health Care Professional Marcia Martin
Marcia Martin has always been passionate about helping people. When she was a young girl, she spearheaded her first volunteer action, inspired by her desire to help other kids in her neighborhood in Pittsburgh’s Hill District. Martin is the Vice President of Gateway Health Plan, Pennsylvania's alternative to the Public Welfare Medical Assistance Program. It provides services to over 200,000 members. Martin’s work demands that she understand the core health care needs of her service area, an understanding that has made her an advocate for affordable health care options in low-income communities.
How did you get your start in the health care industry?
This is a second career for me. My first career was in human resources and I was looking to make a change. I've always done a lot of volunteering in the community and I wanted a job where I could help people. I felt health care was the best opportunity for me to use my skills to help people live longer, healthier lives.
