BRG Director Kevin W. Christensen Appointed to Rx Partnership Board
BRG announced today that Kevin W. Christensen has been appointed to the board of directors of Rx Partnership (RxP), a nonprofit charitable organization that strengthens the health safety net by working through a network of clinics across Virginia to increase medication access for vulnerable Virginians.
“I’m pleased to serve on the Rx Partnership board,” said Dr. Christensen, an economic consulting expert with over a decade of experience performing econometric, statistical and qualitative research. “Being a part of Virginia’s only organization dedicated exclusively to medication access for low-income uninsured individuals is incredibly rewarding. I look forward to working with my fellow board members and the RxP team in exploring innovative and effective ways to increase medication access.”
Founded in 2003, RxP was established to coordinate the donation of bulk brand medications from brand pharmaceutical manufacturers to clinics with licensed pharmacies. In 2017, recognizing that clinics without pharmacies needed access to affordable generic medications, RxP launched the Access to Medication Program (AMP), in which RxP leverages group purchasing power to provide generic medications to those clinics.
