Prior to joining the Solidago, Pierre worked as a policy analyst at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy. At HHS, Pierre staffed the National Advisory Committee on Rural Health and Human Services where he worked on many issues ranging from two generation approaches to child poverty, family implications of substance use disorder, and linking health systems transformation to the social determinants of health.
