Project Manager, Southern Health Partners
Amanda Ptashkin serves as Project Manager for the Southern Health Partners Project at Community Catalyst and oversees technical assistance to consumer advocacy organizations within 12 Southern states on a range of advocacy capacities such as coalition building and maintenance, organizational strategic planning, and designing and implementing successful health advocacy campaigns.
Prior to joining Community Catalyst, Amanda served as the Outreach and Advocacy Director for Georgians for a Healthy Future, a health policy and advocacy organization focused on consumer health care issues. In that capacity Amanda managed the organization’s coalition building and convening efforts, provided outreach and education to community groups across the state and served as a licensed navigator during the Affordable Care Act’s first open enrollment session.
Amanda holds a bachelor degree from New York University with a focus on Politics, with a Health Policy minor and graduated from Widener School of Law in Delaware with a juris doctorate and health law certificate.
Community Catalyst works to ensure consumer interests are represented wherever important decisions about health and the health system are made: in communities, courtrooms, statehouses and on Capitol Hill.
