Expert Spotlight

Melissa Hafner | Principal Researcher

For a recent study on dually-eligible individuals—patients who receive both Medicaid and Medicare benefits—Melissa Hafner and her team wanted to connect directly with patients. The interviews that resulted were "illuminating, humbling, inspiring, and sometimes even funny." In our newest Meet the Expert profile, she discusses those findings, how American healthcare is evolving, and her personal journey to this line of work.
