The National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) has chosen Lindsay B. Schwartz, PhD, as the next board chair of the Center for Excellence in Assisted Living (CEAL). Schwartz is currently serving as NCAL’s senior director of workforce and quality improvement, where she spearheaded initiatives for data-driven technology in assisted living settings, including the expansion of the LTC Trend Tracker data analytics tools.
The CEAL appointment will move Schwartz into more collaboration and research. CEAL, a coalition of provider, consumer and advocacy groups, is involved in several research initiatives on assisted living quality measures, person-centered care and standards development for home-based care.
Schwartz earned her PhD from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health in the Department of Health Policy and Management. She also holds certificates in gerontology and public health economics.
