The newest subject of the Women's Health Leadership TRUST Member Spotlight is Rachel Henely Nelson, a TRUST Board member and Vice President and General Manager, Federal Programs, with Prime Therapeutics. She provides strategic leadership for the Medicare program offering for 20 health plans and the Federal Employee Program Specialty contract. She manages all program finances, including profit and loss (P&L), budgeting and financial forecasting. Rachel provides leadership direction of the development and implementation of program goals and strategies with primary focus on growth and retention, affordability and access, compliance and quality management and total drug management initiatives. She develops and maintains positive, effective relationships with health plan client executives to ensure alignment and achievement of organizational priorities, investments and outcomes.

Rachel stays involved with the TRUST because of the connections she's made through the years and the value she receives from the organization through networking, learning and mentoring. "I am in awe of the personal and professional strength of this collective leadership organization."

She wants to support other women in their leadership journeys by providing them with opportunities to showcase their knowledge and experience, "whether that be encouraging their engagement and presentation in an everyday, business-as-usual meeting at work, or through active participation in the many industry forums available locally and nationally, such as the Women’s Health Leadership TRUST. I truly believe that when an opportunity to shine is provided, most will outperform your expectations!"
