Eva Marie Stahl
Project Director, Community Catalyst Alliance for Children's Health
Eva Marie Stahl, PhD is the Director at Community Catalyst Children's Health Project, which focuses on ensuring children and their families have access to high quality health care that contributes to their long-term wellness. Included in this work is the New England Alliance for Children’s Health (NEACH) that supports New England advocates working to advance a children’s health agenda through regional coordination and shared learning. In addition, Eva coordinates efforts to advance and sustain children’s coverage in six states that make up the Community Catalyst Alliance for Children’s Health (CCACH) — a growing network that strengthens cross-state learning and facilitates resource sharing. In her role, Eva is responsible for providing and coordinating support for state advocates including strategic coaching, policy analysis, campaign and coalition work and learning platforms. She works to include voices from children’s health partners at both the state and national levels.
Formerly, Eva was a Policy Analyst at Community Catalyst where she focused on ACA implementation and private insurance issues. In her current capacity, Eva continues to work on issues related to private insurance and Exchanges, Essential Health Benefits (EHB), health literacy and health care workforce shortages. Before joining Community Catalyst, Eva completed her Ph.D. in social policy at Brandeis University. During that time she worked for the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and for the Agency for Health Care Research and Quality (AHRQ). She holds a master’s degree from the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs and a bachelor’s degree from Colgate University.
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.
