The Next Stage team is thrilled to announce that community health thought leader Randy Jordan is joining our team as Chief Advisor, Impact for Health.

Randy is a nationally known community health expert and a passionate and thoughtful leader, committed to strengthening and improving healthcare systems and ensuring that every individual has access to high-quality care. We first got to know Randy through his leadership of the NC Association of Free and Charitable Clinics and we have been enthusiastic partners ever since.

Prior to joining Next Stage, Randy served as a pharmacist and drugstore owner, a partner at a healthcare specialty law firm, CEO of global health charity HOPE worldwide and CEO of the NC Association of Free and Charitable Clinics, a network of 72 free and charitable clinics that each year provide health and social services to more than 80,000 uninsured and underserved North Carolinians. Throughout his career, he secured federal, state and private funding to support community health initiatives, while creating visionary programs that strengthened the health safety net at both a local and global level.

In addition to his work at Next Stage, Randy volunteers with the Bernstein Fellows program and will serve as the Community Co-Lead for the Uninsured Workgroup as part of the 2023 North Carolina State Health Improvement Plan.  He and his wife, Jan, enjoy the growing families of their two children and 4 grandchildren.
