For Stephanie Aines and Right Care Alliance (RCA), success is a completely transformed healthcare system. Aines and her community have fought against high insulin costs, advocated for withdrawal of FDA approval for controversial treatments, and coordinated study groups to teach others about why our healthcare system is broken. In this case study, you’ll learn the important role that relationship building has played in RCA’s continued efforts.
As Director of Organizing and Training for Right Care Alliance (RCA), Stephanie Aines has worked hard to stitch together meaningful relationships among members of her organization. As Aines puts it, these relationships are the glue that holds everything together. In this mini case study, we take a closer look at how Aines and her community have leaned on relationships to not only sustain RCA’s important work, but to drive key initiatives that have led to significant change within the healthcare system in the United States.
We want a completely transformed healthcare system, one in which people have a strong local primary care network, no matter where they live, where decisions are very much between a person and their clinical team. – Stephanie Aines, Director of Organizing and Training
