Telehealth policy center taps Mei Wa Kwong as new executive director

The Center for Connected Health Policy elevated its interim Executive Director Mei Wa Kwong to the post permanently, the organization said Friday.

Ms. Kwong has served as interim executive director since the passing of CCHP's previous executive director Mario Gutierrez in August 2017. Prior to that, Ms. Kwong was CCHP's policy advisor, as well as project director for the National Telehealth Policy Resource Center.

"No one can ever truly replace Mario who did so much not only for the telehealth field but the underserved and rural communities. As the new executive director, my plan is to continue on with the work Mario started to ensure telehealth can be utilized to provide services in the best way possible to those who need it," Ms. Kwong said.

Before joining CCHP in 2010, Ms. Kwong served as policy analyst for Children's Home Society of California where she was recognized for her work by the Child Development Policy Institute.

She holds a juris doctorate from the George Washington University Law School and an undergraduate degree from the George Washington University School of International Affairs.
