Cari Miller joined the Board in 2017. She is Aunt to two beautiful nieces; the oldest age 11 has Classic Galactosemia, and the youngest, age 9, is a carrier for Galactosemia. Cari has been attending the Galactosemia conferences with her sister-in-law Tracey, since the 2008 conference (and they have some interesting travel stories as a result) !!! Her nieces started attending in 2012 and thoroughly enjoy their time at the conference meeting other children and participating in all of the activities. Looking for a way to give back, Cari volunteered to become an active member of the Gacatosemia Foundation and was offered a Board position in late 2017.
Cari has extensive professional experience in the healthcare arena, having developed, implemented and directed healthcare projects for more than 20 years. Her activities in the healthcare arena focus on several areas, including working with physicians, practice teams, and hospital/health systems to identify ways to improve the care they are providing to their patients, including access to care, implementation of evidence-based quality care guidelines, and overall patient satisfaction and engagement with the healthcare system. She is currently working for a large health plan with a focus on developing strategic partnerships.
