Erin Fair Taylor - Project Access NOW - Board Chair

Erin Fair Taylor, JD

From 2007 to 2009, Erin served as a lead health policy staff person in the Oregon Legislature, which heralded landmark health reform legislation and laid the groundwork for successful implementation of Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. Erin then applied that policy experience to lead CareOregon’s innovative, collaborative development of five Coordinated Care Organizations, which have transformed how Oregonians access and experience Medicaid services, and how the Oregon Health Plan is administered.

Erin has served on the board since 2017 and brings a deep knowledge of Medicaid policy, investments that promote equity, and community health strategies to improve access to care.

Prior to her arrival in Oregon to study law at the University of Oregon, Erin studied Public Health at the Tulane University School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine in New Orleans. She is a proud Florida Gator.
