Aaron Campbell offers our clients insight into navigating complex regulatory and community relations challenges to advance policy agendas, build trust and grow relationships with key stakeholders.

His healthcare policy knowledge and perspective come from direct work with lawmakers, industry executives and community advocates over a decade-plus career in government and community relations roles within state government and the not-for-profit sector.

Campbell’s efforts for Tennessee included Medicaid reform, the creation of the Cover Tennessee program and many industry and professional licensure initiatives. Additionally, he worked with a coalition of community nonprofits and experts on implementing the Affordable Care Act and with the Tennessee Hospital Association and 75+ businesses and organizations on Medicaid expansion.
