Welcome to our third episode and our conversation with Camille Clarke-Smith, EdD, MS, CHES, CPT, program director of quality improvement/Medicare/SNP STARs at UPMC Health Plan, which includes the UPMC for Life Medicare Faith and Wellness Program. As with UPMC Health Plan’s Freedom House 2.0 and Pathways to Work program, whose foundation is infused with a holistic approach to community support—please check out our second episodes in this series, “Overcoming Employment Barriers for Lasting Social Impact: Freedom House 2.0 and Pathways to Work,”—Clarke’s background as a health activist and wellness advocate guided her to approaching community health holistically through spiritual and community engagement with faith-based organizations and Medicare-enrolled members. This includes efforts, under her program leadership, that address social determinants of health and cultural barriers by stressing the importance of physical, mental, and personal wellness.
