UnitedHealthcare and Sue Schick, President of UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Pennsylvania and CEO of UnitedHealthcare Employer & Individual in Pennsylvania and Delaware
The Eastern PA Chapter is pleased to announce that UnitedHealthcare and Sue Schick will be our 2013 honorees. At the JDRF Promise Ball 2013 kickoff, Schick remarked that it was particularly important for UnitedHealthcare to be involved with JDRF in Philadelphia, as this is where Lee Ducat started the organization over 42 years ago. Schick acknowledged Ducat’s tenacity when faced with her son’s diagnosis of type 1 diabetes, and connected that determination to the enthusiasm of today’s volunteers, who remain deeply committed to curing diabetes. Schick’s local UnitedHealthcare team has been involved with the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes and Promise Ball for the past several years; in fact, Schick was the Corporate Chair for the Walk in 2009 and 2010.
Sue Schick is the President of UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Pennsylvania and CEO of UnitedHealthcare Employer & Individual in Pennsylvania and Delaware. Sue joined UnitedHealthcare seven years ago and has over 25 years of leadership experience in the health and employee benefits industry.
