Meet the Kohn Scholars
My name is Marco Ramirez, and I received my B.A. degree in Public Health from the University of California, Berkeley in 2018. Shortly thereafter, I was a recipient of the 2018-19 John Gardner Public Service Fellowship and placed at the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) in San Francisco. At KFF, I worked as a member of their Program for the Study of Health Reform and Private Insurance. I have since worked on health policy at the state level with stints at Covered California—the state agency that manages California’s individual market—and Public Consulting Group (PCG) where I advised state research work regarding Utah's section 1115 Medicaid waiver. My passion for public service stems from my desire to improve the lives of my community and I believe health policy is the perfect vehicle to accomplish such.
