Nolan Jekich
Social Media Marketing Intern

Nolan joined the Cambia Grove team in August of 2020. His primary role consists of communicating and marketing Cambia Grove’s mission across various social networking services. 

Before Cambia Grove, he graduated from Seattle University where he played baseball and received a Bachelor’s of Arts in Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies. He has a combination of written and verbal communications experience in several business industries. Nolan was drawn to health care after he volunteered at Bailey Gatzert Elementary School at the start of 2020. He wants to have long-lasting, meaningful impact within the community by making health care more accessible and affordable to individuals and families of every economic background. He is ecstatic to join the organization that focuses on implementing change throughout the health care system. 

When he is not looking to communicate the journey of innovating health care, he enjoys exercise, golf, and writing. Nolan looks forward to helping Cambia Grove communicate the transformation of the health care system, improving his skills as a marketer, and serving his community. 

Early thoughts from Nolan:

Why did you join Cambia Grove? I joined Cambia Grove because of my passion to transform the health care system, having positive impact within the community, and finding solutions to complex problems. 

My education and previous work experience has led me to effectively deconstruct complex understandings throughout society, and what is more complex than health care!
  
What are your thoughts on the barriers facing health care innovation? The system itself seems like a barrier to health care innovation. However, I believe using the 5 Points of Health Care™, we can all come together to transform the system. Focusing on implementing change within the system, we can give the best care for patients across the nation.

Any preliminary thoughts on innovation? With COVID-19, we have seen the early effects of innovation regarding technology and telemedicine. I believe there is tremendous opportunity for innovation by focusing on immediate changes we can implement within the system while also acknowledging what solutions need to be created for a long-lasting impact.
