FOCUS
I am Director of Programmatic Services and Innovation in the Cook County Health and Hospitals System, serving both Chicago and the suburban Cook County region. My job is to work across the integrated delivery system to expand programs and services through innovative partnerships with public and private partners. To achieve improved health outcomes, health equity, and a Culture of Health, I work to bridge silos by forging collaborations and partnerships between nontraditional partners. My priority areas of work are developing programs to support justice-involved people, creating opportunities to implement the system’s behavioral health strategy, and identifying opportunities to address housing and food insecurity.

MORE ABOUT LETICIA
I am an expert at navigating complexities to successfully work across and bridge silos, and I am innovative in my approach to finding solutions by forging collaborations and partnerships between nontraditional partners. As a systems thinker, I can find linkages across different stakeholders and provide leadership to align and move us all in the same direction. My goal is to build bridges between sectors that are sustained over time.
