Rebecca Alderfer Named Chief Executive Officer
We are pleased to announce that Rebecca Alderfer, MPP has been named our new Chief Executive Officer. Rebecca has more than 20 years of experience leading strategic efforts across complex systems, advancing impact and resources through philanthropic, private enterprise, and government partnerships, and advocating for change through policy and community leadership.
“Our board of directors and staff are delighted to have Rebecca lead the organization as we continue to grow our statewide initiatives over the coming years,” said CPCQC Board Chair Jessica Anderson, DNP, CNM, WHNP, FACNM. “She brings a wealth of knowledge that will help us expand our strategic partnerships, build capacity, and ultimately, have a greater impact on our community and on the lives of moms and birthing individuals across the state.”
Rebecca comes to CPCQC from her own consulting firm, Summit View Strategies, where she most recently worked with clients to expand mental health screening and access to care during pregnancy and postpartum for the ZOMA Foundation, test a mental health care strategy for SonderMind, and steer the 2022-2023 Maternal and Infant Health Initiative of the National Governors Association. Prior to starting her firm, Rebecca built extensive experience across the healthcare and social determinants of health spectrum, including guiding US health related foreign assistance at the White House Office of Management and Budget, stemming global infectious diseases through the U.S. State Department, increasing access to dental care for low-income people and assessing housing policy during the Great Recession through the Pew Charitable Trusts, and evaluating the capacity of the primary care workforce in Colorado at the Colorado Health Institute.
Rebecca holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from Iowa State University and a Master’s degree in Public Policy from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota.
“We are at a pivotal moment in maternal and infant health in the U.S. Stakeholders spanning all economic sectors are currently engaged and focused on reframing perinatal care to support mothers and families in one of the most significant human transitions of a person’s lifetime and the foundation for human growth and development,” said Rebecca Alderfer, CPCQC’s new Chief Executive Officer. “CPCQC’s team is working to support diverse partners across the state to inform and adopt holistic, innovative approaches to perinatal care. This organization will also account for Colorado’s maternal well-being to ensure that pregnancy, birth, and infant health outcomes are maximized and equal for all Coloradans. I am excited to be a part of the next phase and expansion of CPCQC’s mission.”
