Members of the Medicaid Medical Directors Network (MMDN) Steering Committee will share their greatest research needs for 2023 and answer questions related to the policy applicability of emergent evidence needs during this panel discussion.

As the leading clinicians serving at the nexus of research, policy and practice they are keenly aware of the pressing clinical needs of Medicaid beneficiaries and the programmatic, financial and administrative obstacles that often impede improved health outcomes.
