The Community Advisory Group is comprised of leaders of nonprofits, community organizations, foundations, and anchor institutions. The primary goal of the Community Advisory Group is to provide the New York Fed, including President John C. Williams, with a real-time view of the economic issues faced by a diverse set of communities and individuals across the Second District. Ms. Wang’s appointment comes in advance of the Community Advisory Group’s next meeting on
June 27, 2022.
Ms. Wang joined Healthfirst, New York’s largest not-for-profit health insurer, in 2008 as its President and CEO. Prior to joining Healthfirst, she worked at the Greater New York Hospital Association for 17 years, where she served as senior vice president for finance and managed care. Her first major project there was to create Healthfirst with a consortium of area hospitals. Healthfirst was established as a separate corporation in 1993 and now has 1.8 million members in New York City, Long Island, and Westchester, Sullivan, Orange, and Rockland counties.
Earlier in her career, Ms. Wang practiced health law and clerked for the Honorable Whitman Knapp in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. She is a graduate of Princeton University and New York University School of Law, where she received her J.D. degree, cum laude.
