This week on Conversations at Fletcher, we are joined by Penny Washington, chief executive officer of Advance Community Health (formerly known as Wake Health Services). Penny explains the many changes in store at Advance, including a new 35,000 square foot building in Southeast Raleigh. We chat about the power of collaborative effort on community health matters, how Advance’s ability to serve the public would be affected if North Carolina expanded Medicaid, and why she believes working at a community health center is what she was meant to do.
