There might have been a time that the director of government and community affairs for a large regional health organization had an obscure job that didn’t elicit much conversation.
This isn’t that time. The national conversation brought death panels, mandates, Obamacare, Romneycare, Hillarycare, cost curves and other words and phrases into the collective vernacular. And with it, the job of communicating the concerns of a health system with those it interacts with became one that’s likely to generate lively dinner conversation.
At the University of California, San Diego Health Sciences, that job falls on 35-year-old Aaron Byzak.
