“I am deeply honored by this recognition from NMQF for my leadership around a shared purpose for data equity, health education, policy, and the elimination of disparities,” said Lang. “Excellence in healthcare elevates a commitment to patients, providers, and the community as we build alliances that serve and support access to treatment, research, and care delivery.”
