PacificSource Health Plans’ Miguel Angel Herrada Receives Oregon Primary Care Association Health Equity Award
(Springfield, Ore.) April 27, 2018—The Oregon Primary Care Association (OPCA) has awarded PacificSource Health Plans’ Miguel Angel Herrada the Health Equity Award for leading the cause to improve health equity for Central Oregonians. Herrada serves as PacificSource’s health equity and diversity strategist.
Herrada has been recognized by the OPCA for the work he has done with Mosaic Medical, where he serves on the organization’s Board of Directors. Mosaic Medical is a nonprofit community health center system with Central Oregon-based primary care clinics that serves individuals and families regardless of income or insurance status.
Miguel Angel is a champion in Central Oregon for improved access and services for minorities in our communities,” said Mosaic Chief Medical Officer Megan Haase. “Congratulations to him on this well-deserved honor.”
I am honored to receive this award, but I must also give credit to Mosaic's dedicated staff and leadership, who every day are working to bring equitable care to everyone in our community,” said Miguel Angel Herrada. “I'm so grateful to be a part of this effort and to share this honor with all of my fellow board members at Mosaic and other groups where I serve representing PacificSource.”
Herrada, with fellow Mosaic Board member Sandy Giardini, formed Mosaic’s Health Equity Workgroup to examine the organization’s patient population data with a goal to assess the type of care each patient was receiving, and ensure they were providing equitable care at every clinic for distinct populations.
