Remembering Rick Brown: An Advocate For Reform And Data-Driven Policy – Health Affairs Blog

E. Richard (Rick) Brown, a nationally recognized public health leader who advocated for health care reform and pioneered the collection and broad dissemination of health survey data to influence policy, died Friday, April 20. Rick was 70 at the time of his death, and passed away shortly after moderating a session at the Keeneland Conference Center in Kentucky on the critical role of state and local health surveys. Throughout his life, Rick looked for ways to build bridges between the most underserved Americans and the people who were supposed to help them – lawmakers, academics, and advocates. For Rick, helping people was always a deeply personal mission.
