Event description
Join Ryan Donahue and Julia Terlinchamp as they explore how we align health care incentives that promote economic development.

About this event

There are countless opportunities to transform the health care system through innovative solutions. In order to make meaningful progress, the key foundational elements to support innovation - infrastructure, incentives, and culture - must be optimized. Ryan Donahue, Nonresident Fellow from the Brookings Institute, and Julia Terlinchamp, Director of Life Science & Global Sector Lead, Washington State Department of Commerce, will lead a roundtable discussion to explore the ways in which economic development organizations can both accelerate and benefit from aligned health care incentives.

Who should attend? Cambia Grove’s roundtables welcome any interested stakeholder to participate. While this event is aimed towards innovators bringing value-based care solutions to health care, economic developers and policymakers, all community members are welcome.

BIO: Julia Terlinchamp, Director of Life Science & Global Sector Lead, Washington State Department of Commerce

Julia Terlinchamp is Governor Inslee’s Life Science and Global Health Sector Lead at the Washington State Department of Commerce. She supports the sector’s ecosystem across the state through initiatives focused on workforce development, startup/small business development and promoting the state to external stakeholders locally and abroad. As COVID-19 struck the state, Julia was activated in March 2020 to the State Emergency Operations Center to help support the response.

She has held multiple roles since the beginning of the pandemic, including helping source ventilators and testing kits for the state to purchase as well as helping manufacturers retool to produce PPE. In Spring of 2020, she created and then lead the state’s Business Response Center, responding to thousands of inquiries from employers and employees about existing public health measures, questions about the reopening requirements and other pandemic-related concerns. The primary goal of this center was to help Washington-based employers and employees navigate the many policies, health, and safety concerns that have arisen as a result of the pandemic. She left that position in October to focus on economic recovery on behalf of Commerce.

Julia has a Masters of Public Administration with a concentration in Economic and Public Policy from London School of Economics, a B.A. in International and Intercultural Studies from Pitzer College and was a Fulbright Scholar to Bulgaria.
