Former Anthem exec joins Geisinger as first chief DEI officer

Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger health system has named Kim Drumgo its first chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer.

Ms. Drumgo most recently served as the chief diversity officer for health insurer Anthem, a news release shared with Becker's Oct. 19 said.

Other previous roles include director of diversity and inclusion for the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants in Durham, N.C., and chief diversity official at Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, according to LinkedIn.

"One thing that makes Kim unique is she recognizes that each community of people may have different health needs, including the black community having a higher rate of diabetes, transgender men having lower rates of cervical and breast cancer screenings, and a higher rate of suicide among military veterans," the news release said. "She will take all these factors into account to create an inclusive healthcare setting that connects with patients and their specific situations."
