It is with mixed emotions that we bid farewell to Deborah Owens, NC Get Covered’s ACA Project Specialist. Deborah joined NC Get Covered in May of last year, and has offered vital support to North Carolina’s outreach and enrollment community since that time. She served on the planning committee for the 2016 North Carolina In-Person Assister Conference, worked with partner organizations to coordinate regional trainings on North Carolina’s qualified health plans, and co-faciitated monthly NC Get Covered Coalition and Advisory Board meetings.
Although Deborah will be sorely missed by NC Get Covered staff and partners alike, we are delighted to know that her service to others will continue long after she is gone. As was announced at Friday’s NC Get Covered coalition meeting, Deborah will leave for Nepal on Monday to help send two Nepalese battalions to the United Nations Regional Force in Juba, South Sudan. We wish Deborah much success in her humanitarian efforts and are praying for her safe return.
