Peggy O’Kane – “A Woman in Business” in Huffington Post
September 20, 2016 · NCQA Communications
NCQAers are so proud of our president, Peggy O’Kane, a true “woman in business.” Friend and mentor to many of us, she has a genuine interest in the people who work here. And she is equally committed to her work. As many of you know, Peggy’s passion—and her life’s mission—is ensuring and improving quality and equity in health care. This dedication sprang from personal experience. Early in her career as a respiratory therapist, she was inspired to do something about the inconsistencies she saw in health care. Nearly 30 years later, Peggy says, “ I learned that persistence is a virtue. Refusing to get discouraged has been essential, as well.”
