Clara Soh on Ways to Educate Policy Makers on Health Care Issues

In Chapter 13 of 20 in her 2013 Capture Your Flag interview, health economist Clara Soh answers "How Are You Learning to Better Educate Policy Makers on Complex Public Health Issues?" Soh finds the translating complex policy analysis across stakeholders one of the biggest challenges she faces. This includes taking econometric research and its mathematical and differential calculus inputs and accurately translating it so policy makers who are not trained in math and statistics can understand it. Clara Soh is a health economist and Senior Director of Policy and Research at a pharmaceutical trade organization in Washington, DC. Previously, Soh held senior roles at Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research (KPCHR) and Health Policy Research Northwest (HPRN). Soh earned her Masters of Public Administration (MPA) in Policy Analysis and Healthcare Public Finance from the NYU Wagner School and a BS in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University.
