Emily Oake is the Special Populations Coordinator for the Arizona Alliance for Community Health Centers. Ms. Oake was born and raised in the Phoenix area. She received her BS in Political Science from Arizona State University. She worked in numerous retail management positions in the Phoenix metropolitan area before attending Arizona State University to attain her Master’s of Health Sector Management degree (the equivalent of a Master’s of Healthcare Administration). During the course of her study, she worked as a research assistant for the co-director and founder of the Healthcare Supply Chain Research Consortium and as an intern for St. Luke’s Health Initiatives. This internship was coordinated closely in conjunction with AACHC and looked at the financial impact of eliminating health coverage for certain AHCCCS populations on Community Health Centers. Following completion of her MHSM, Ms. Oake was hired as an intern for AACHC to assist in coordinating the Voter Engagement Campaign, a NACHC project, for the 2012 elections. Following the completion of this project, she was kept on to become the Special Populations and Outreach Coordinator. This position serves as the point of contact for all health centers looking for training and technical assistance for any federally designated special populations. She also collaborates, plans, develops, and coordinates with other organizations in the state to increase resources available to special populations. In addition, she develops and maintains publications and social media presence to use for outreach activities and to increase awareness of issues affecting Arizona’s medically underserved populations.
