Avram Goldstein Joins CHCF from National Health Care Campaign

Communications expert to focus on health reform, public programs, and state policy


The California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF) is pleased to announce the appointment of Avram Goldstein as senior communications officer for the foundation’s Health Reform and Public Programs Initiative and State Health Policy office in Sacramento.

Goldstein will advance the foundation’s work to support policymakers, health care stakeholders, state agencies and departments, and the public, through research and analysis, policy briefings, and stakeholder convenings.

“Av’s background in health care journalism and health policy communications adds depth to our team at a time when CHCF is focused on the roll-out of health care reform in California,” said Spencer A. Sherman, director of publishing and communications at CHCF. “His experience will help support the foundation’s initiatives in Sacramento and statewide.”

Goldstein comes to the foundation from Washington, DC, where he was most recently the communications and research director for Health Care for America Now, a national coalition that supported enactment of the Affordable Care Act.

Before joining HCAN, Goldstein was a veteran journalist specializing in health care. He has worked for the Washington Post, Bloomberg News, the Detroit News, the Miami Herald, and other news organizations.
