Marylou Sudders, MSW, Associate Professor of Macro Practice and Chair of the Health and Mental Health Concentration at Boston College Graduate School of Social Work, has been appointed to the Massachusetts Health Policy Commission Board. The board appointments include a diverse mix of distinguished health policy experts, practitioners, and industry leaders.
The Commission, created by the Commonwealth's historic health care cost-containment law signed by Governor Deval Patrick in August, is charged with monitoring the reform of Massachusetts health care delivery and payment systems in order to reduce costs and improve quality. The 11-member board will be critical in implementing the next phase of Massachusetts health care reform.
Professor Sudders, recent President and CEO of the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (MSPCC), also serves as a mental health expert for the U.S. Department of Justice. She has devoted her professional career to the issues of mental health and mental illness and protecting and promoting the rights and well-being of children, families, and adults.
