“We are extremely excited to have Larry serve as our new Associate Director for Education and Health Care,” noted Executive Director Wadas. “His commitment to faith, combined with his experience of dealing with health care issues, will prove extremely valuable in addressing the wealth of policy issues we address at the WCC.”
