PHI names new federal affairs director

Daniel Rutherford Wilson will become the new director of federal affairs for the Paraprofessional Healthcare Institute (PHI), one of the nation's key policy advocates for healthcare's direct-care workforce.

Wilson, a 10-year veteran of the senior care policy realm, most recently served as national and federal programs director at Compassion & Choices, an organization focused on end-of-life choices. Wilson has also held positions with the National Caucus and Center on Black Aged and the Office of Management and Budget. Wilson also is a current co-chair of the 2016 Aging in America conference, sponsored by the American Society on Aging.

"Daniel’s wealth of experience and dedication to advocating for older Americans will be a tremendous asset to PHI’s renowned policy and research program," said Robert Espinoza, PHI vice president of policy, in a press release. "He arrives at a pivotal time when members of Congress and other federal officials are grappling with ensuring that our long-term care system has the necessary workforce to support millions of older adults and people with disabilities."
